Does Covid infect one differently depending on whether they are a man or a woman? A recent American study shows the latter are less likely to be symptomatic but more likely to suffer from "long covid".

Now we know we are not all equal to coronavirus. Since the epidemic broke out, scientists have managed to identify several comorbidity factors enabling to define profiles the most likely to develop severe Covid-19. As to find out about how long immunity lasts after catching the virus, it depends on individuals.

According to a recent study shared by Le Parisien, women infected by coronavirus are immunized longer than men. The study has been carried out by searchers from the Inserm, Institut Pasteur, and Strasbourg hospitals which Grand-Est region is one of the regions the most hit by the third wave of the coronavirus epidemic.

According to conclusions from the study, female patients lose antibodies they have created when recovering more slowly. This investigation only focuses on cases of people who have caught Covid-19. The scientists’ upcoming goal is now to find out more about how long immunity lasts in people vaccinated against coronavirus.

On June 15, 2021, another American study led by the Fair Health Institute has been released and shines a light on another observation. According to them, wome are less likely to be symptomatic, but more likely to suffer from "long Covid": it means, they are longer to recover from the disease.
