What can men do to reduce the impact of COVID-19?
“We don’t know everything about COVID-19. But some things we do know. Young or old, rich or poor, fit or unfit, men are twice as likely to die of COVID-19 as their female counterparts. The risk increases if you’re older, from a black or minority ethnic community, overweight, have diabetes or other underlying conditions like lung disease .”
This week, Porterhouse Medical Group is supporting the charity Men’s Health Forum in raising awareness of how to ‘Take Action on COVID-19’ as part of Men’s Health Week 2020.
Here is the first of a series of infographics looking at what can be done by men, their employers and the government to reduce the impact of COVID-19.
