COMMENT FROM PROFESSOR DOCTOR GÜNER SÖNMEZ
Prof. Dr. Güner Sönmez made an assessment about my research from his social media account. Dönmez used the following statements in his statements:
“1. In women, the innate immune response fighting viruses is stronger.
2. While estrogen hormone makes it difficult for the virus to bind to receptors and enter the cell, male hormones facilitate it.
3. There are some immune proteins controlled by the X chromosome.
While men have one chromosome, women have 2 X chromosomes. These differences cause women to have Covid 19 infection milder and men more severe. “
