COVID19 Latest: People with THIS Blood Type have 97% resistance to the Virus
News just broke on the international scene that people with certain blood types are more susceptible to the deadly COVID-19 virus and tend to show more severe symptoms, breakthrough research has found.
Experts in China have found that people with blood type A are more vulnerable to the strain of Coronavirus, whereas people with type O seem to be more resistant.
After analysing the blood patterns of more than 2,000 infected patients in China, the researchers found that those with type A blood showed a higher rate of infection and developed more severe symptoms. Those with O type tended to experience more mild symptoms from the disease.
According to the report, people with blood group O+ and O- have 97 % resistance to the infection.
However, those with blood group A are most vulnerable to the disease and may require more intensive treatment and care. People in this category are advised to take proper measures to protect themselves.
Wang Xinghuan, with the Centre for Evidence-Based and Translational Medicine at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University, stated: “People of blood group A might need particularly strengthened personal protection to reduce the chance of infection.
“Sars-CoV-2-infected patients with blood group A might need to receive more vigilant surveillance and aggressive treatment.”
These reports also show why there are fewer cases in Africa compared to other continents. As Africa on Global blood index has more persons living with type O blood group.
This is definitely a good time to be grateful for being an African/Black man.
