Gender Covidity

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 9:16 am Mon 27th June 2022

We’ve had racial covid, and perhaps it does disproportionately affect some races, I haven’t really followed that, but now gendered covid has arrived as reported in the Herald this morning.

Women were more likely to suffer from a variety of symptoms, including ear, nose, and throat issues, mood, neurological, skin, gastrointestinal and rheumatological disorders, as well as fatigue.

Male patients, however, were more likely to experience endocrine disorders such as diabetes and kidney disorders.

The study authors, from Johnson and Johnson, said differences in immune system function between females and males could be an important driver in the differing symptoms they found.

Sounds like an add for pharmaceutical products, but who am I to judge?

  1. There was a hard lesson learnt, with Covid.

    Because at any time, a new virus will emerge.
    Evolution demands, things breed.
    So everything is trying, to be more infectious.
    If it try’s to be less infectious, it becomes extinct.
    Trillions and more bugs are trying, constantly.
    Every change in DNA, tested by its environment.

    Living with animals, is an obvious but unavoidable risk.
    But why just blame the animals, the soil and water is alive.
    Covid makes it clear, response to disease is important.

    If an unusual illness occurs, how organised is the response.
    Isolation of all close contacts, as a precaution.
    Human to human transmission, is an important test.

    If it spreads to close contacts, do you lockdown immediately.
    Dare not it escape, so we learn the lessons of Covid twice.
