This research aims to elaborate on the question of why male patients
of COVID-19 dominating globally (data are taken per 24 June 2020).
Depart from the hegemonic masculinity concept, the argument proposed
in this writing is that traditional gender role which positioned men as
breadwinner is one of the vital factors to the high infection among men.
Men who are supposed to work outside their house is arguably more
vulnerable to the virus. The argument is extracted from both Pakistan
experience against COVID-19. According to UN Women, this country of
top the list of countries who has the highest disparity among male and
female patient, reaching more than 70 percent of male and 30 percent for
the female. The statistic goes hand in hand with the notion of traditional
gender roles rooted deep within the community.
