China Study Reveals People With Blood “Type A” Might Be More Vulnerable To COVID-19

A new study reveals that the people with blood “Type A” may possibly be more susceptible to COVID-19, while those with “Type O” seem to be more resistant, as per to an initial study of patients who are Covid-19 positive in China.

The medical researchers conducted the research in China and took the blood group patterns of more than 2,000 patients who are infected with the virus in Wuhan and Shenzhen. The researcher found in that research that the patients with blood type A are mainly exposed to a higher rate of infection along with that they can also develop more severe symptoms.

However, the researchers also said that the study was in its initial stage and there is more work required, they urged the governments as well as the medical facilities for considering blood type differences.

The researchers have been led by Wang Xinghuan with the Centre for Evidence-Based and Translational Medicine, which is located at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University wrote, “People of blood group A may need particularly strengthened personal protection for reducing the chances of infection,”

Wang also wrote, “Sars-CoV-2-infected patients with blood group A may possibly need to get more cautious surveillance as well as aggressive treatment,”

While talking about “blood group O”, it had a considerably lower risk for the contagious disease as “compared with non-O blood groups”, as per to a paper they published on Medrxiv.org, dated March 11.

Out of the total number of 206 patients who had died from Covid-19 in Wuhan, 85 of them had type A blood, which was also 63 percent exceeding the 52 with type O. The pattern has also existed across different ages as well as different gender groups.

The study was held by scientists as well as the number of doctors from cities across China comprising Beijing, Wuhan, Shanghai and also Shenzhen. It has not been peer studied, and the authors warned that there may possibly be some risks involved while using the study for guiding present clinical practice.

Gao at the Tianjin lab also put his remark on the new study and said that this study “may be helpful to medical professionals,” but at the same time ordinary “people should not take the statistics too seriously”.

You don’t need to panic if you type A and it also does not mean that “you will be infected 100 percent,” she said.  Similarly, if you are type O, then it also does not mean that “you are absolutely safe, either.” You still need to follow the precautions and “wash your hands and follow the guidelines issued by authorities.
