Scientific research to be key to confirm Covid-19 lethality


Scientific research to be key to confirm Covid-19 lethality

Washington, Feb 3 (Prensa Latina) A Covid-19-related study could be key to confirm men are more vulnerable to coronavirus than women, a scientific source revealed Friday.

According to the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, a research was done on mice, in the case of female mice the coronavirus took much longer to wreak havoc in their lungs.

Scientists at Hackensack Meridian Health in the United States explained the mice´s adipose tissue may act as a reservoir for SARS-CoV-2, preventing lungs from suffering greater viral load.

This prevents lung damage due to infiltrating immune cells and activated proinflammatory cytokines.

Male mice had more virus in lungs, while female mice showed more in fat tissue.
