    Sex differences in the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD have been controversial and the underlying mechanisms of COVID-19 MESHD sexual dimorphism remain understudied. Here we inspected sex differences in SARS-CoV-2 positivity, hospitalization, admission to the intensive care unit (ICU), sera immune profiling, and two single-cell RNA-sequencing (snRNA-seq) profiles from nasal tissues and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of COVID-19 MESHD patients with varying degrees of disease severity. Our propensity score-matching observations revealed that male individuals have a 29% increased likelihood of SARS-CoV-2 positivity, with a hazard ration (HR) 1.32 (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.18-1.48) for hospitalization and HR 1.51 (95% CI 1.24-1.84) for admission to ICU. Sera from male patients at hospital admission had decreased lymphocyte count and elevated inflammatory markers ( C-reactive protein HGNC, procalcitonin, and neutrophils). We found that SARS-CoV-2 entry factors, including ACE2 HGNC, TMPRSS2 HGNC, FURIN HGNC and NRP1 HGNC, have elevated expression in nasal squamous MESHD cells from males with moderate and severe COVID-19 MESHD. Cell-cell network proximity analysis suggests possible epithelium-immune cell interactions and immune vulnerability underlying a higher mortality in males with COVID-19 MESHD. Monocyte-elevated expression of Toll like receptor 7 HGNC ( TLR7 HGNC) and Bruton tyrosine kinase ( BTK HGNC) is associated with severe outcomes in males with COVID-19 MESHD. These findings provide basis for understanding immune responses underlying sex differences, and designing sex-specific targeted treatments and patient care for COVID-19 MESHD.
