Ring finger and COVID-19

[B][SIZE=6]men who have longer ring fingers[/SIZE][/B][SIZE=6] are less likely to die from COVID-19 [/SIZE]

This is an interesting connection.
It’s been a few months since coronavirus became prevalent in the United States, and now that we know more about it, interesting studies are coming out all the time… including this totally unexpected one.
Apparently, men with long ring fingers are less likely to die from COVID-19, and the reasoning behind it is actually pretty interesting — and scientific all at the same time.
It makes sense that men and women would handle coronavirus differently and now, we’ve found one more way that’s true. A study that will be published in the July 2020 edition of the Early Human Development Journal has discovered that men who have longer ring fingers aren’t just less likely to die from COVID-19 — if they do contract it, they are also more likely to have milder cases than men who have shorter fingers. Super-specific, yes, but definitely interesting.

It all ties back to testosterone.
Longer ring fingers happen when men are exposed to more testosterone in the womb, and that means that they have more of the ACE2 enzyme in their body, which helps protect the body from coronaviruses like COVID-19. At the same time, that enzyme can also keep coronavirus from causing damage to the lungs, which can reduce the symptoms they experience.
A professor working on the study seems optimistic about their findings.
Professor John T. Manning, who published this study, seems to believe that this could mean good things for men who do happen to come down with COVID-19.
“The theory is that someone with high prenatal testosterone — and a long ring finger — has greater levels of ACE2," he said. "These concentrations are large enough to oppose the virus. Our findings may be men with long ring fingers will experience mild symptoms and could return to work.”
Men in certain countries will be less likely to have severe symptoms because of it.
Men in certain countries are already predisposed to having long ring fingers — in fact, those living in Australia, New Zealand, Austria and East Asia are at an advantage, while men from England are not and have made up 56% of coronavirus deaths so far. It’s positive for men who did happen to win the genetic lottery, but of course, it’s nothing that anyone has control over.

Men are still more likely to contract COVID-19.
Though this is certainly good news for men who fit into the long finger category, in general, men are more likely to die from coronavirus than women — 2.4 times more likely. Older men and men with pre-existing conditions are also more likely to die than women who are facing the same odds.
Longer fingers aren’t a foolproof way to know if coronavirus will be severe or deadly, though.
The more we know about coronavirus, the faster we’ll be able to attack it, so any developments like this study are a great sign. Stlll, no matter how long anyone’s fingers are… remember to practice great hygiene and wear a mask in public. No coronavirus is way better than even the mildest case, after all.

so if you have a shorter ring finger, stay safe and stay home doing something better with your fingers.

How long should a ring finger be to be less vulnerable? Unless ight has hidden message that men with long penis have a higher chance of surviving… just saying

hehe.
just longer than the middle finger and you are good to go.

Hii story where do we begin…

  1. ACE2 receptor is the receptor of the virus (where the virus attaches when it attacks) not the protector. The protector remains white blood cells
    2.Higher exposure to testosterone in the womb, meaning the mother has higher testosterone ama vipi? This would be an abnormality
    3.When was this study done? Wapi scientific evidence by scientific journals, how long would this study have been done to be provable?

Pole if am a party pooper, kama ni jokes, carry on…I just have to inject the madam with testosterone hadi katoto katokeee. That way I can future proof him/her.

no need to apologize. we need people like you who question every little piece of information out there.
that’s how we get credible information and information from different kinds of perspectives.
also brought it here to have different or proffesional views about it.

it’s a working theory that has only been conducted during this COVID 19 Pandemic. more research is been conducted and the study/theory will be published in the July 2020 edition of the Early Human Development Journal.

Nonsense!

hehe.
its a new area/disease and every scientist/doctor will want to be the first to publish any findings on it.

How long is long?
Is long long when the ring finger is longer than the middle one?

longer than the middle finger (a full middle finger)
but this are just observation made by the doctor, it might actually be attributed to something different other than the fingers.
but let’s wait for the publication to be sure.
