Abstract

The entire scientific community have come together in the last eight months to understand the details of the novel SARS-CoV-2 virus that has caused the COVID-19 pandemic. We now have a fair idea of the main targets that should be looked into in depth to fight the virus. However, the data from different population groups on the different testing or treatment strategies is still largely lacking. Populations are diverse in terms of their genetics, nutritional status, microbiota, access to facilities, among many other factors. This article makes a case for looking into women-specific data on test results, response to disease management strategies, as well as mortality due to COVID-19, otherwise currently missing.
