According to the current statistics, there is a sudden rise in the number of men who died from Coronavirus. The comparison shows the number of male cases of COVID-19 death is higher than the female cases. Men have a high amount of an enzyme in the cardiovascular regions which seems to be the root cause. The presence of high amounts of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE2) in the blood of men proves to be harmful. ACE2 receptors are the reason why more men are dying due to coronavirus as compared to women.
The ACE2 receptors located on the surface of the cells is the target point for COVID-19 to spread infection easily. The virus spreads easily in tissues throughout the body including your heart, veins, lungs, and even brain. The SARS-CoV-2 virus is particularly present in the testes at very high concentrations. This ultimately leads to death.
How ACE2 receptors aid Coronavirus in killing men
New research, published in the European Heart Journal, measures the ACE2 concentrations in blood samples collected from men. The study clearly shows a high amount of men as opposed to women. The presence of such a strong biomarker in high concentrations in men shows why more men die of COVID-19.
Coronavirus attacks ACE2 receptors.
ACE2 stands for Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2, found in the lungs, heart, kidneys, brain and testes.
Coronavirus will cause male infertility.
Coronavirus will cause cognitive decline.
Coronavirus will damage lungs and heart. https://t.co/WkFfRaN2pI

The widely used pressure medication also known as the ACE inhibitors does not necessarily lead to high ACE2 concentrations. The pandemic has already seen the worse effects of many drugs on COVID-19 patients due to the same issue.
More than 1 in every 4 patients at the chronic stage of the disease had the virus detected in their semen. Therefore, to avoid contact with patients, blood, and saliva is not enough. The virus may not be sexually transmitted, but it is always better to stay prepared.
