Emerging data, either the infection rate as well as the lethality rate, highlight sex and gender differences in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The comprehension of the mechanisms underlying those differences will be important in designing gender-specific prevention and treatment strategies. Therefore, it is recommended to disaggregate by sex the collection and analysis of epidemiological and clinical data from COVID-19 patients, at national and international level.
