Men were more affected by the pandemic than women. Statistical data also confirms this information. Hürriyet writer Osman Müftüoğlu answered the question ‘why are men more unlucky’ in his article he wrote today.

There are different reasons why men have a higher risk of COVID-19 than women. The first is that the immune system is stronger in women than in men. Experts attribute this difference to the hormone estrogen and the fact that women carry two X chromosomes, which contain genes related to immunity. In addition, it should be important factors that women comply with hygienic rules more than men and generally pay more attention to their health. On the other hand, the fact that chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and COPD, which aggravate the course of the disease and increase the probability of death, are more common in men is an important determinant. If you ask me, the fact that men are more careless and relaxed than women in complying with protective measures such as wearing masks and complying with social distance may also be an effective factor.


Nose picking is wrong, rightly and rightly, a bad behavior that is not welcomed by the environment. There are also some serious health risks that this nasty habit can pose: People who pick their nose run the risk of infecting their noses with germs that may stick to their fingertips from the environment, and they can also transfer the different microbes they carry in their noses to the surfaces they touch. This important information also applies to the new coronavirus. Moreover, the nostrils are the number one gates through which the new coronavirus can enter our body!

Research has also clearly and clearly shown that transmission through the nose is more frequent and important than the mouth in COVID-19. On the other hand, it is certain that nose picking can make it easier to catch the disease by causing damage to the protective tissue layer (epithelium) inside the nose. In short, it is possible to turn the pandemic process into an important opportunity to get rid of the habit of picking your nose.
