Men’s Health Week: What can men do to reduce the impact of COVID-19?

Men's Health Week Infographic: Managing the impact of COVID-19

 

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  [1].”

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.
