Blood Test Showing How Severe COVID-19 Will Become

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

Meanwhile, people with blood group O or B, experienced a visit in the ICU with a median of about nine days. However, people who have blood types A and AB are the most vulnerable to the infection. One took a gander at 95 fundamentally sick COVID-19 patients at emergency clinics in Vancouver, Canada, among February and April. The findings also reveal patients across different ethnic groups continue to show fewer infections if they have O blood.

Past research analyzing a hospital outbreak in Hong Kong suggested that people with Type O blood were less susceptible to (the original, not the pandemic) SARS, which shares ~80 percent of its genetic code with the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.

They wrote that patients with blood groups A or AB were more likely to require mechanical ventilation (34, or 84%) versus those with blood group O or B (35, or 61%), which means that their risk of lung injury from Covid-19 was greater. "Patients in these two blood gatherings may have an expanded danger of organ brokenness or failure because of COVID-19 than individuals with blood types O or B", the investigation creators closed.

The researchers also point out that they did not find any significant difference in rate of infection between A, B, and AB blood types.

Both new observations came out Wednesday in the journal Blood Advances.

A study in June looking at patients in Italy and Spain found that blood type O had a 50 percent reduced risk of severe coronavirus infection (i.e. needing intubation or supplemental oxygen) compared to patients with other blood types. "It is very important to consider the proper control group because blood type prevalence may vary considerably in different ethnic groups and different countries", said study author Torben Barington from the University of Southern Denmark.

Chinese President Xi Jinping instructs troops to focus on 'preparing for war'
Xi added that soldiers must be "absolutely loyal, absolutely pure, and absolutely reliable". This is widely seen as the country is preparing for war.

A progressing research team implied a connection between coronavirus risk and blood type.

Anyone with blood type O negative are universal donors as in they can donate their blood to all groups. People having O blood group have neither antigen.

According to the news in Scitechdaily, there was no such score for COVID-19 until this study. These patients were more prone to organ dysfunction or failure due to coronavirus.

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

Despite all this, Mypinder Sekhon, a co-author of the Vancouver research, said that the link is still insubstantial. "And in case you're blood bunch O, you're not allowed to go to the pubs and bars".
