The other week, I mentioned the effects of the Corona Bug over at TPC.

Let’s get this out of the way, too: while it appears the nCoV19 can infect nearly anyone (it’s a cold virus strain, BTW), it also appears to be much more dangerous to Asians. And, from what I’m hearing, it really savages the Asian male population. But, don’t take my word for it:

The observation is tentatively confirmed by Chinese biologists:

We also noticed that the only Asian donor (male) has a much higher ACE2-
expressing cell ratio than white and African American donors (2.50% vs. 0.47%
of all cells). This might explain the observation that the new Coronavirus
pandemic and previous SARS-Cov pandemic are concentrated in the Asian
area.

Again, according to official stats, most people are recovering.
