However, experts agree more research is needed and these studies do not allow people with certain blood types to disregard pandemic safety precautions. Researchers in Denmark find fewer coronavirus patients have O blood compared to those with A, B, and AB blood. The findings indicate why the coronavirus is lethal for some and not so for the others. The interesting observation made in this study was that the patients with the blood group A and AB required more of the mechanical ventilation, as compared to the blood group O. Similar was the case with patients being admitted in the ICU.

Between the blood types A, B and AB, no significant difference in rates of infection was found.

"I don't think this supersedes other risk factors of severity like age and co-morbities and so forth", Dr. Mypinder Sekhon, who is a clinical assistant professor in the Division of Critical Care Medicine and Department of Medicine at the University of British Columbia told CNN. There is no evidence to the contrary: none of the blood groups is a sentence for the patient.

Until now, remdesivir was the only drug that appeared to have specific effects for Covid-19 and the only drug with an emergency use authorization specifically for the virus from the US Food and Drug Administration. In the scientific journal Blood Advances, a special edition of the American Society of Hematology, the results of two new studies were published on October 14 - from specialists from Denmark and from Canada.

In a second study also published on Wednesday, Canadian scientists examined 95 COVID-19 patients in Vancouver between February and April.

Recent reports have suggested that ABO blood groups might play a role in the infection, with a lower than expected prevalence of blood group O individuals among patients.

Also this summer, the genealogy website 23andMe.com released data they collected from 750,000 participants who identified they have tested positive for COVID-19.

Daily coronavirus infection rates are climbing in the USA as the nation nears 8 million official COVID-19 cases - a sign the country is in for a tough winter, experts say.
