Scientists at the University of Washington in the USA have established the causes of the dangers of COVID-19 for young and middle-aged men. The same applies to older people, in whom the coronavirus causes more dangerous symptoms than other populations.
Representatives of the stronger sex, as well as elderly people, are often susceptible to a violation of the protective reaction of the immune system. For this reason, these populations have more dangerous symptoms. Scientists have studied the practice of diagnosing coronavirus infection. They established the presence of the nucleotide sequence of viral RNA in 430 patients infected with COVID-19. At the same time, 54 volunteers took part in the experiment, who had negative test results for an extremely dangerous infection. Scientists, based on the available data, analyzed the reaction of human body systems to the coronavirus.
The specialists took into account the infectious status of the subjects and the viral load of the elderly and young and middle-aged men. The body's immune response is formed in them three days after the onset of the infectious process, while the number of immune cells is in direct proportion to the viral load.
