The Blue Ribbon Covid-19 Appeal.
You may have all read that during this pandemic men have been the largest number of deaths. Yes, young or old, rich or poor, men are TWICE as likely to die of Covid-19 as their female counterparts.
If you’re young and fit, the virus in you may be less severe than in an older person (but not necessarily - it also kills young fit people). Many - but not all - of the people dying from Covid-19 are older and/or have existing health issues (such as diabetes or diseases of the lungs, heart or liver). For this reason, older men or those with existing health issues that may weaken their resistance need to be especially mindful of the guidance. People from black, asian and minority ethnic communities are also at higher risk.
In addition, don’t forget that some 75% of suicides are men.
The Blue Ribbon Foundation is a charity specifically dealing with men’s approach to their health and wellbeing. One in five men are still dying before they get to their pensions! Men will often present cancer too late; more men have diabetes and heart problems.
The Foundation goal is to help men live a long, healthy and happy life by education and information. We go out to talk to men in their workplaces, we deliver over the internet and we signpost one-to-one.
Covid 19 is dreadful, we now have proof what this terrible disease does to men, and the probable root causes in men’s health and wellbeing.
Please help us to educate our men so they can live longer, healthier and happier lives and possibly reduce these terrible statistics in the future.
