"My department is currently testing medications to determine their effectiveness on COVID-19 patients. We suspect medications used to treat SARS can be effective. We have also noticed that men are dying at significantly higher rates than females so we are also testing the idea that --estrogen-- might provide an extra layer of protection. My duties are to collect the data, blood serum samples, analyze patient's electronic medical records and discuss the findings with the physician-scientists leading the studies."
