The Guardian: Long Covid more likely in working-age women than in men – study.

I wondered if these stats closely relate to ME stats. That's assuming we even have the data for ME.

Working-age women who are hospitalised with coronavirus are five times as likely to develop long Covid as men in the same age group, according to research presented to the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage).

Preliminary data shared with scientific advisers suggests that women under 50 are five times as likely as men under 50 to report a new disability, six times as likely to experience greater breathlessness, and twice as likely to feel more fatigued up to 11 months after leaving hospital.

This might belong in the articles part of the forum. Happy for a mod to move it if so.
