Good news for some of us, maybe?

I have just read this in the Times.  I suppose there is some logic in that men are twice as likely to die with coronavirus as women.  I wonder if Prostate Cancer UK would be interested in supporting some similar research in UK?  I declare an interest - I have metastatic prostate cancer and take Decapeptyl!

"A study of 4,532 men in the Veneto region of Italy has found that those who were being treated for prostate cancer with androgen-deprivation therapy, the standard treatment, were less likely to develop Covid-19 and, if they were infected, the disease was less severe. The study is published in the journal Annals of Oncology today."
