Blood Group O Less Likely To Contract Coronavirus


Scientists are working around the clock to identify the Covid-19 risk factors, two new studies, that investigated the “potential role of blood type in predicting” the risk, revealed that people with blood group ‘O’ are less vulnerable to the novel coronavirus infection than any other blood type.


Although these new studies provide evidence of a potential link between blood type and vulnerability to Covid-19, additional research is needed to better understand why and what it means for patients, a report in Science daily said.

Researchers found that among the individuals who tested positive for the novel coronavirus, “considerably fewer group O individuals were found”, while “conversely, more A, B, and AB individuals were noted”. This means that that person with blood types A, B, or AB may be at a higher risk of getting infected with Covid-19 than people with type O.
