An Australian politician has called the coronavirus pandemic a “gendered crisis,” arguing that the Chinese virus impacts women the most drastically despite the facts.
“COVID-19 is a gendered crisis. Nurses, nurse aides, teachers, child carers and early-childhood educators, aged-care workers and cleaners are mostly women,” wrote Australian Senator Mehreen Faruqi in a Twitter post.
“They are on the frontline of this public health crisis and carry a disproportionate risk of being exposed to the virus,” she added.
Faruqi, a practitioner of Islam who describes herself as a proud feminist and Pakistani migrant, also posted a rant of herself whining on the Senate floor about how the coronavirus is sexist.

Even though Faruqi is complaining about women “on the frontline of this crisis,” the actual numbers show that it is men who are dying in disproportionate rates due to coronavirus.
The data shows that coronavirus is likely impacting men by at least a 2-to-1 margin rather than women:
More than 10,000 people have died from the novel coronavirus, with men seemingly hit harder by the virus than women, according to early data.
A study out of China involving 99 cases found that two-thirds of the patients who required hospitalization were male, while data out of Italy suggests 70 percent of the country’s COVID-19 fatalities involve men.
As of Friday, Italy’s case count had surpassed 41,000, with over 3,400 fatalities. The country, which has the second oldest population in the world behind Japan, has reported that 87 percent of fatalities involve citizens over 70. And overall, more than 70 percent of COVID-19 deaths have involved males, according to Istituto Superiore di Sanita, the country’s health agency.
“The honest truth is that today we don’t know why COVID-19 is more severe for men than women or why the magnitude of the difference is greater in Italy than China,” Sabra Klein, professor at Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health, told The Hour. “What we do know is that in addition to older age, being male is a risk factor for severe outcome and the public should be made aware.”
Italy’s findings match those of the medical study on the 99 patients in China published in The Lancet on Jan. 30.
“It is an eye-catching discrepancy,” Anjana Ahuja, a science writer, said at the time. “A picture is emerging of the 2019-nCoV as a novel pathogen that disproportionately affects older men, particularly those with existing illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes.”
Feminist social justice warriors like Faruqi will exploit any opportunity, even if it is an unprecedented public health care that has thrown the entire world into a mass panic, to push their bigoted anti-male agenda.

Pope Francis Prays For Coronavirus Relief in Unprecedented Empty Vatican Audience
The Pope appeared alone.
Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.
Imagery of the event revealed the striking emptiness of the Vatican square, the overcast and rainy weather adding to the solemn nature of the papal event.

“May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,” said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”
The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.
The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.
Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
