For our discussion board, provide a sociological analysis on the gendered pattern of COVID-19 infections. To do this, first provide a very brief summary of the “what” (the observed pattern) and then explain the “why.” The “why” should use a social constructionist perspective and should exclude opinions. It is encouraged to use material from the week to support your analysis.

Readings:
Kang, et al. Unit I “Masculinities”
