The latest statistics on the coronavirus pandemic have revealed that more men than women are dying from the disease. So what is it that makes women so much better equipped? Hormones, doctors say. Men make up nearly 75 percent of the coronavirus patients in intensive care or on ventilators at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Dr. Sara Ghandehari, a pulmonologist, told the New York Times. Meanwhile, infected men in NYC were dying at close to twice the rate of COVID-infected women as of early April, NPR reports. Estrogen and progesterone are critical to the reproductive system, but scientists have recently learned

Comments:

Men aren't consuming enough soy for their liking, so let's try this. Also, there's a constant drumbeat on how the Trumpvirus disproportionally affects Communities of Color, but on not how men are hardest-hit. Swap the sexes and wow, more evidence that Trump hates women! MSM propaganda is laughably predictable.

Am guessing more men are getting in motorcycle accidents, having heart attacks and dying of cancer while contracting Chinavirus at the hospital on the way out. Like it or not, folks, Trump’s CDC guidelines are responsible for the garbage numbers that lead to ridiculous stories. I really, really hope the President is not getting burnout from all of the BS. I’m 20 years younger than him and prolly couldn’t have kept up with him on the campaign trail in 2016. Then again, I can’t imagine the regenerative effect of being married to Melania.

Could it be something as simple as men being more likely to be exposed in the first place? Nahhh! Progressives have been trying to neuter men for decades - here's just another excuse.

Golly is the no aspect of our once great nation that can't be deconstructed in the name of COVID 19? It's like the miracle cure for Americanism isn't it. This just in, castration cures COVID 19 in 50% of the cases while chewing tobacco and working on cars and cavorting with women work for the other 50%.

Aren't the levels of sexual hormones much lower after menopause? Look, then, at the age ranges of the comparative report. The fatality rates for women after menopause should appear much closer to that for the men, if the female hormone is the factor.

Due to political correctness, you will never hear of any data that indicates whether the higher mortality rate for men in NY is due to the underlying health issue of HIV in the gay male population. When you get to other areas where there are not large gay communities, then the mortality rates are similar. Of course, you then get the stats skewed by the veteran retirement homes like in MA.

Toronto—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Friday that Canada is banning the use and trade of assault-style weapons immediately. Trudeau cited numerous mass shootings in the country, including the killing of 22 people in Nova Scotia April 18 and 19. He announced the ban of over 1,500 models and variants of assault-style firearms, including two weapons used by the gunman as well as the AR-15 and other weapons that have been used in a number of mass shootings in the United States.(Snip) In the meantime, they can be exported, returned to manufacturers, and transported only to deactivate them or get rid of them.

US health experts who worked in the Trump, Obama, and Bush administrations have called on Congress to introduce new measures worth billions of dollars they say would ease the coronavirus crisis–including daily stipends of $50 (£40) for people to isolate at home. In a letter addressed to Congress on Monday, the bipartisan group of experts outlined a four-point plan worth $46.5bn (£37.2bn) that could re-open the US economy after prolonged closure caused by the pandemic.(Snip) Andy Slavitt, the former Obama administration director of Medicare and Medicaid and Scott Gottlieb, the ex-Food and Drug Administration head under Donald Trump, said

New Jersey’s two biggest toll roads took a multi-million hit in lost revenue last month due to coronavirus travel restrictions. Revenue on the New Jersey Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway were down in March, as traffic dropped due to more employees working from home to avoid exposure to COVID-19. New Jersey Turnpike Authority earnings dipped by $21 million for the first three months of 2020, said Donna Manuelli, Turnpike Authority chief financial officer on Tuesday. Toll revenue, which is the authority’s biggest revenue source, was down $23 million than what was budgeted for, she said. The authority earned more than expected from interest

New York — New York City and Newark were among dozens of city public schools asking for Congress to allocate $200 billion for schools in upcoming relief packages. The letter was sent on behalf of The Council of the Great City Schools which calls itself "the nation's primary coalition of large, urban public school districts." The coalition is asking for $175 billion allocated in educational stabilization funds, $13 billion for IDEA, $12 billion in additional Title I program funding and $2 billion for E-Rate, as well as emergency infrastructure funds. So far, Congress has allocated $13.5 billion for public schools in the CARES act,
Pentagon to backfill money

The Trump administration notified Congress this week that it will try to refill the money it took from Pentagon accounts to use to build the border wall by cutting European defense assistance. The move angered Democrats on Capitol Hill, who said President Trump is playing games with the Defense Department’s money, moving money to further his own ends and ignoring what Congress intended. To make matters worse, they said, is the European Defense Initiative is a signal of support for U.S. allies against Russian aggression, and cutting the money is dangerous. “Once again, the Trump administration is putting domestic political considerations ahead of national security,

President Trump’s wall is the most aggressive border construction project in U.S. history — but it just got 22 miles shorter. The latest calculations for how much wall can be built with the $15 billion Mr. Trump has won from Congress or siphoned from other Pentagon accounts works out to 731 miles, which would be more border fence than every previous president combined has built. But it’s also 22 miles shorter than the Department of Homeland Security and the Army Corps of Engineers were projecting at the beginning of April. Officials said a certain pot of Defense Department money can’t stretch as far as they originally thought.

Two Texas women were charged last week after an undercover police sting found they were allegedly offering salon services at home during the coronavirus pandemic. Laredo police said they launched investigations into both cases this month after receiving anonymous tips that the women were violating stay-at-home orders. “Both of the violators independently solicited customers via social media,” police said in a statement, the Laredo Morning Times reported. “On both cases, an undercover officer working on the COVID-19 task force enforcement detail made contact with each solicitor to set up an appointment for a cosmetic, beauty service that is prohibited under the emergency ordinance.”

More than 200 deep-pocketed public companies secured at least $854.7million in loans from the relief fund Congress created to help small businesses devastated by the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new analysis. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was created to provide emergency loans to businesses with fewer than 500 employees and without access to other forms of capital to help keep workers on the job and bills paid on time. The initial $349billion allotment ran dry less than two weeks after the program opened on April 3, sparking outrage as early reports showed that dozens of multi-million dollar loans were granted to big public companies

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is what the kids these days call "thirsty AF." For weeks, Abrams has been all but begging former vice president Joe Biden to pick her as a running mate. Abrams's thirst for power appears to know no bounds. According to a Politico report published Tuesday, the former Georgia lawmaker has been waging an aggressive behind-the-scenes lobbying effort in addition to her public self-promotion campaign. Abrams, who has repeatedly declared herself the winner of Georgia's 2018 gubernatorial election despite receiving fewer votes than her Republican opponent, has been "privately calling Democratic powerbrokers, asking them to tell Biden campaign officials that she should be vice president."

The United States should prepare for another 18 to 24 months of “significant COVID-19 activity” — which likely won’t end until about 60 to 70 percent of the population has been infected, recover and develop herd immunity, experts reveal in a new report.

Finally, several of the women’s groups prepared a public letter that praised Mr. Biden’s work as an “outspoken champion for survivors of sexual violence” but also pushed him to address the allegation from Tara Reade, a former aide who worked in Mr. Biden’s Senate office in the early 1990s. “Vice President Biden has the opportunity, right now,
