(CBS4) – A new survey shows when it comes to wearing masks, women may be doing a better job than men. It also says women are also better at other coronavirus prevention measures.

CBSN Denver asked CBS4 Medical Editor Dr. Dave Hnida about the survey.

“The bottom line is, in general, we men, we’re idiots when it comes to protecting ourselves and others when it comes to COVID. We do not do a good job.”

Dr. Dave said the survey reflects how men in general tend to look at health care. “Overall, we don’t go to the doctor when we’re sick, we don’t go get our routine checkups done. We don’t wind up taking medications as we should. Our behaviors tend to be more reckless.”

Incoming freshmen ask questions at an informational tent while arriving on campus at University of Colorado Boulder on August 18, 2020 in Boulder, Colorado. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many colleges and universities are instituting different strategies this fall semester, with most students living on campus attending all classes with remote instruction.

“I think what really have to about, men, is that you are not really doing this to protect yourself. I’d like you to think about it from the standpoint, not just from COVID, but from health care in general, do it for the people that you care about, the people who love you, in terms of taking care of yourself.”

    Beta males and sissy boys don’t know what being masculine is. We don’t cower. We don’t snivel. We DEAL with adversity and try to ignore any impulse to crawl back into bed and hide under the covers. As bad as it is, Covid is no worse than the Hong Kong flu of ’68 or the Asian flu of 1958. Americans didn’t run and hide back then.

    Hnida, don’t put us in the same category as you. As MEN, we are informed on what our rights are and are fully aware that they are trying to be taken away. We are not puppy dogs that will lay on our bellies and let people like you and Polllis take away those rights. You can continue to spout your leftist agenda but most educated proud AMERICAN citizens see through your propoganda.
