Blood type O has a lower risk of contracting COVID and organ complications
Since the outbreak of the new Coronavirus, many factors including pre-existing medical conditions, obesity and aging have been linked to a high risk of developing COVID infection. But according to a recent study, blood types can also determine the risks of shrinking #COVID-19. However, many scientists and medical professionals continue to study the link between SARs-COV-2 and the different blood groups as they try to understand the same.

A study published in November 2020 in the medical journal Nature claimed that blood type can influence the risk of contracting the #Coronavirus. The study evaluated 14,000 individuals in the New York Presbyterian Hospital system and found that people other than positive blood type O were more likely to contract the virus.

In one previous study published in the journal, Blood Advances, which conducted on 473,000 individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 and a group of more than 2.2 million people, it was found that blood type O had less shrinkage of COVID risks and organ complications.

A recent Canadian study published in Blood Advances evaluated data that included 95 patients with severe COVID-19 infection. Of the 95 individuals, 84% had blood group A and required mechanical ventilation.

In comparison, 61% of the O and B blood group groups required similar treatment.

The researchers came to the conclusion that type A blood type has a higher risk of developing COVID contractions compared to other blood types.

According to a recent study and earlier research, blood type O is less likely to have COVID-19 infection and less likely to develop the disease.

Experts suggest that different types of blood groups have different effects on our circulatory system and change the way blood clots in the body.

According to the director of research at Inserm, a French medical research body, Jacques Le Bendo, individuals with blood type O are less likely to have blood clots, which tend to have a serious impact on the level of COVID-19 severity and risk.
