UTIs are less frequent in men than women, but they aren't rare, especially as men get into their 40s. Perhaps more important, kidney damage is an occasional complication of COVID, and urinalysis abnormalities exactly like this can be a sign; see the link below. He needs to see his doctor ASAP. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35105331/

Men get UTIs too. Have him drink plenty of fluids and repeat the urine test in a few days. If there is still blood in urine see an MD
