The first study on blood type and susceptibility to COVID-19 was done in China comparing over 2000 people. This study suggested that those with O positive or O negative blood types fared better when exposed to the COVID-19 virus. Some doctors promoted this study, but others wondered if anything coming from China had any validation. Since then, more studies have been done which now validate that O blood types have a lessened risk for getting COVID-19 and tend to have less severe cases. People with this blood type should still be cautious. It doesn’t mean they can’t contract it.
This information has value especially when considering who is more or less vulnerable. We know that those with suppressed immune systems are more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 and those with certain comorbidities are more likely to develop more severe cases. It appears our government did not want a portion of our population to know that they might have a lessened risk. Our government officials also never informed the public about how healthy lifestyles can reduce your vulnerability. The failure to educate any good news or to give any hope concerns me. Although this information doesn’t give O blood types a free pass, it certainly would have reduced the fear factor which only depletes our immune systems.

How many of you heard rumors that blood type might affect your vulnerability to COVID-19? What other factors that you’ve discovered may impact your risk for COVID-19?
