What gender is most affected by the flu?
There is not enough study on this topic for complete analysis yet, however, the data from the pandemic of 2009 is being studied to get a better understanding of this aspect of infectious viral diseases. But, more is being discovered that suggests perhaps women are more affected by the flu than men. The current thinking is that more women can be exposed to the viruses that cause influenza, as they are commonly in the role of caregiver to the ill and more likely to catch the viral disease. Because there is a link between asthma and chronic lung disease and a more severe reaction to infection by influenza viruses, women again are more affected than men, since the severity of asthma and chronic lung diseases is often worse in women than in men. The outcome and complications are also thought to be worse in women, especially pregnant women and some factor of the hormones may be in play.
