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.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection
Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.
“God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.
Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.
The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.
Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.
Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
