New research shows that the blood type may determine the chances of infected with COVID-19

New research shows that the #blood type may determine the chances of infected with #COVID-19 and its severity.

Danish #scientists compared the blood of more than 473,000 infected individuals to more than two million when looking at the average man or woman.

They found that people who have blood types A, B, and AB were prone to be infected than those with type O.

In an independent study from Canada, researchers looked over nearly 100 hospitalized patients.

Those with blood types A or AB were more likely to have severe #disease requiring mechanical ventilation and dialysis than people with blood type O or B.
