What the article seems to be saying is that men are twice as likely as women to die from coronavirus. This is because of the male hormone Androgen. It is this hormone, which causes hair loss in men.
 

So the answer to your question seems to be that men who are bald or who have male patterned baldness may be at risk.


Androgen is “the gateway for the virus to enter our cells” said Professor Wambier, who has led two studies in Spain. Both these studies found that a “disproportionate number of men with male-patterned baldness being admitted to hospital with the deadly disease.“

 

“Another study in Veneto, Italy, of 9,280 patients found men with prostrate cancer who were on androgen (i.e. male hormone) deprivation therapy were only a quarter more likely to become ill with Covid-19 than those on other treatments.”

aaaaa, the Daily Mail always trust them to come up with these obscure studies

 

 

Ahh, another newspaper snob. Welcome.

 

It is reported in the Daily Torygraph:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/bald-men-higher-risk-severe-case-covid-19-research-finds/
 

The problem is that you may not be allowed to read the full article, because it operates behind a paywall. At the very least you will have to sign up to receive a weekly email from them to read one or two free articles each week ... but they will be articles which they have chosen for you.

 

This is why it is easier to give a link to  Daily Mail, because its articles are open and free to all to read.

Bald men are already trying to cope with baldness let alone this now increased Corona risk, life isn't fair.

 

Isn't this just due to age though? older people are at greater risk of kicking the bucket with Corona

I put the blame on the self-styled research scientists who tabulate and publish these useless statistics in self-styled scientific journals.

 

As for the news media, I can't blame them for commenting on these pseudo-scientific reports for our amusement.

The same hormones that cause baldness are also implicated in underlying health conditions, such as heart disease and high blood pressure.  Essentially, of course, baldness is a male trait.  But it's not the baldness that is killing guys, or even the hormones, it's underlying health conditions in conjunction with the misfortune of suffering the most severe form of the disease.

Sounds like a right load.......Bald chaps will attract more vitamin D, which they now say is a biggy in staying safe..Now if bald blokes don't go out in the sun, then who knows.

 

What I have read is, coloured folk have a problem because their skin type is to protect from the sun, less vitamin D......😋

 

Weeeell, I suppose tabloids must come up with something to fill the pages eh..🤭


It’s unusual for ThaiVisa celebrities (and former POTY winners) to post on threads I have started.

 

On February 24, not so long ago, TV posted a report quoting the Tourism Minister, Pipat Ratchakitprakarn


 

 

 


“We'll be back to normal within half a year," he said. "After Songkran the worst will be behind us" and also “The virus can't survive long in hot weather".

 

ThaiVisa readers very quickly posted 19 pages of comments: 90%++ didn’t believe him, and that he was talking moonshine. 

 

One TV reader (fulviahf) went so far as to say: “As a member of government ... your lies will damage the people.” And way back then you seemed to agree with him about the Minister’s views on the health benefits of vitamin D😜 (page 9)

 

I have to admit that I didn’t believe the Minister back then either, but like you, over the last few weeks and months, I have changed my mind about vitamin D too 😊 

 

Who knows, you may change your mind about what you read in tabloids as well.
