Men Hospitalized for COVID-19 Were Younger and Healthier Than Women Who Were Hospitalized

Men who were hospitalized for COVID-19 in New York City during the early days of the pandemic were both younger and healthier on average than their female counterparts, according to a new study by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The study, posted to the preprint server medRxiv, analyzed the electronic health records of 3,086 racially diverse COVID-19 patients who were admitted to five hospitals within the Mount Sinai Health System on or before April 13, 2020, and followed through June 2, 2020.
