Sex, gender and COVID-19
COVID-19 and healthcare workers
Tracking the sex-breakdown of infections among healthcare workers
In countries with available data, it appears that female healthcare workers are being infected in higher numbers than their male counterparts. So far, very little national-level data on the sex-breakdown of deaths in healthcare workers has been found.
Governments globally should work to ensure that all healthcare professionals have adequate protection against transmission.
