Your Blood Type May Predict Your Risk For Severe COVID-19

Patients with Type An or AB, then, were likewise bound to require dialysis, a system that enables the kidneys to channel poisons from the blood.

Hospitalisation and death from Covid-19, age, cardiovascular co-morbidities, and job status were also collected for confirmed infected cases. "If one is blood group A, you don't need to start panicking".

But the blood group is not a preferable criterion to assess the risk of an individual patient.

A growing number of research show that blood type may play a vital role when it comes to getting infected with the deadly coronavirus. They observed that patients having Type O or B blood spend 4.5 days less on an average in the ICUs than those having Type A or AB blood.

Saint Etienne boss Puel suggests Arsenal for treating Saliba
The Gunners negotiated with championship clubs, including Brentford , to lend to Saliba, but that potential move also collapsed. It had to remain consistent with our finances and his contract, particularly for the management".


The measurement, called the Dublin-Boston score, is created to enable clinicians to make more informed decisions when identifying patients who may benefit from therapies, such as steroids, and admission to intensive care units.

These findings, taken together, suggest that patients in these two blood groups may have an increased risk of organ dysfunction or failure due to COVID-19 than people with blood types O or B.

In the first study, scientists in Denmark analyzed data from 473,654 people tested for the virus between February and July, CNN reported. Further investigations on the mechanism of the different susceptibility to COVID-19 between blood group A and O individuals are needed and regardless of your blood type, you need to follow public health recommendations.

"Individuals with O blood type are between 9-18% percent less likely than individuals with other blood types to have tested positive for COVID-19, according to the data", a company statement said at the time.

Scientists determine that the blood group is resistant to Covid-19 infection
The researchers found that the risk of contracting coronavirus in people with blood type O is reduced by 13 percent. We should learn a lot more about it, "Lars Østergaard, lead doctor of the project, told DR".


Your blood group depends on the presence or absence of proteins called A and B antigens on the surface of RBCs, a genetic trait inherited from your parents.

On the other hand, those who the research deemed more susceptible to falling ill with Covid-19 include the 31 per cent of the population with blood type A and the 2 per cent of the population with blood type AB.

They also controlled for ethnicity, as blood group distributions differ among ethnic groups, and maintained that fewer people with blood type O tested positive for Covid-19. Which shares its 80% genetic code with the new coronavirus. First and foremost, both of these studies only found a correlation with no indication of a causal link.

Despite high levels in blood, using only IL-6 measurements as a Covid-19 prognostic tool is hindered by several factors. However, they can only receive O negative blood.
