    Default In Italy, we live in silence, die in silence — and wait

    CALCO, Italy — Before the virus came, I was living in my usual, hectic way, going back and forth from Milan to Rome for work. As such, I turned a blind eye to the worrying news coming from China. Even the onset of contagion in the Codogno area near Milan was, to me, just another news story.

One less reported observation, so far, is that men tend to be more affected by the coronavirus and their symptoms more severe than women, according to Dr. Luis Ostroksy, Professor & Epidemiologist at the University of Texas McGovern Medical School. Why? Women have higher levels of estrogen. Estrogren, apparently, is protective. However, he warns that men should not run out to buy estrogren supplements. Won't work. Keep reading:
