It's in your genes

Very early on there was clear evidence those of certain blood type were more prone to a poor reaction to this thing than others. I'm sure it was back in April or May 2020. That early. 

Iirc it was A that was more susceptible.

Yes it was A. wheter that data still stands no idea.

Could be looking at multiple / cumulative susceptibility maybe, we know that commodities and weight excepted it is highly unpredictable.

Genetics and COVID-19

......

People with specific blood types are at a higher risk of COVID-19. The mechanism behind this effect likely involves the immune system. A large study found that blood type A was associated with respiratory failure. Meanwhile, blood type O showed protective effects against severe forms of COVID-19.

This study also identified another location on the genome, 3p21.31, associated with COVID-19 risk (this area is located near the genes: SLC6A20, LZTFL1, CCR9, FYC01, CXCR6, XCR1). Meanwhile, in July 2020, researchers found that the IFTN3 variant rs12252-C was associated with disease severity. This gene encodes a protein already associated with influenza severity. The genotypes of 80 patients (56 with mild disease and 24 with severe disease) were compared to their disease severity. Patients who had two copies of the C variant of this gene showed a higher risk for severe disease

Might be worth googling medcram for info on that also. Sure he did stuff on blood types.

Not watched him for a while, went off the boil a bit, plenty more papers out there to trawl through, whole loads of correlations, different ACE receptors, testosterone levels etc etc,

Strictly speaking, it's in my tracky bottoms.

But it won't be later...

Oi, that's my favourite joke whenever I hear someone say "It's in your genes..."

I quickly quip "but sometimes it flops out". 

Honk honk :Beer:

There's been talk months ago about a specific gene making you more prone to blood clots so this sort of news shouldn't be of any surprise to anyone.

No doubt if northern Europe was invaded by malaria infected mosquitos the black n Brown would do better than most whites.
