USA Today: A new database tracks COVID-19’s effects on sex and gender

USA Today: A new database tracks COVID-19’s effects on sex and gender. “Months into the COVID-19 pandemic, details about the virus’ sex and gender implications have begun to emerge: More men than women are dying from the coronavirus. But other details — such as why, or what social or biological mechanisms are involved, or what that means for treatment or public health — remain unknown. One problem, experts say, is an international blind spot to sex and gender. Global disease surveillance systems have done a poor job of monitoring how the virus affects people of different gender identities or sexes. A new database is trying to address that.”
