Dr. Rassman’s Comments:  Reflecting on things we have known for some time: ‘men seem to die 2.4 times more than women for Covid-19’.  Now there seems to be evidence that balding men somehow have a higher risk of death compared to non-balding men with regard to complications for Covid-19 as it relates the way the virus interacts with testosterone levels. The mechanism here and the full evidence is yet unclear.
