I heard this as well.  Try Newsweek and India dot com.  They are both reporting it.

 

I noticed it because I am an O.

Just looked mine up and it is Type O positive. Good news because I have the risk factors they are concerned with.

 

Of course this is not peer reviewed, so who really knows...

Once again the ABs got left out. I guess that's good news in this case?

Heard Dr Seigle mention this on the news this morning and it seems to be something they are looking at.....

 

Caught my ear since that is my blood type......Just something to be aware of for now...

 

After studying 2,000 patients infected with the virus, people with blood type A looked to be prone to serious infection by COVID-19. A preliminary study revealed that those infected with coronavirus and have blood type A developed more harsher symptoms than those who have blood type O.

 

Blood group O had a significantly lower risk for the infectious disease compared with non-O blood groups.


Thank you so much for sharing. Most Europeans are A+. The ABO blood group is genetic. Worldwide, the most common is O+.

You can ask for a source, but I don't think it's a good idea to tell someone not to share information. I can find out where the information is coming from in less than five minutes but I'd never have known the information was out if OP had not posted.
