Coronavirus infection is spreading rapidly worldwide. Around two lakh cases of infection with the coronavirus have been reported all over the world, while more than 7800 people have died. China has the highest number of deaths. Much research is being done in different countries around the world about the infection of this virus, which started from the city of Wuhan in China.
In Wuhan city of China, many studies are being done on hospitalized patients, while scientists are also studying the deaths caused by this virus here. In this sequence, new research related to blood group has come out, which shows that people of which blood group are more at risk from the coronavirus and people from which blood group is less at risk. Let us know in detail:
Important information has been revealed in this study on Coronavirus infection. Actually, in this research in Wuhan, it was tried to find out which group of people are at greater risk of the coronavirus. It was found out that people who have blood group A are at a higher risk of corona infection. Whereas people with blood group ‘O’ are less at risk of infection as compared to A blood group.
In the research conducted in Wuhan about the blood group, it was also told that among the corona virus-infected patients, the highest number of deaths occurred among those with A blood group. A total of 2173 patients infected with the coronavirus were included in this research, of which 206 people died due to infection.
According to a health study, there are more people with O blood group. According to the data, there are about 34 percent of people with the O group and about 32 percent of those with A group. Researchers at Zhongnan Hospital in Hubei Province, China, said that coronavirus infections are more likely to occur in those with A blood group.
According to this research, out of the total infected patients of coronavirus, the number of O blood group is 25 percent, while the number of patients with A group is about 41 percent. Among the patients infected with the virus, about 25% of those with O blood group were killed. Of 2173 involved in the research, 206 were killed, all of them admitted to three hospitals in Hubei province.
The research also included 3,694 people from Wuhan who were not infected, along with infected patients. These people also belonged to the same area. However, this research is yet to be reviewed. Wuhan researchers are unable to explain why the virus spread more among A blood group.
The research revealed that out of 206 people who died due to virus infection, 85 were patients with A blood group. That means 41 percent of the total deaths. At the same time, 52 people were from the O blood group. That means 25 percent of the total dead.
Gao Yingdai, a scientist at the Laboratory of Experimental Hematology, said that the rate of infection and severe symptoms developed more in patients with blood group A, patients in this blood group need more vigilant monitoring and quicker treatment. He said that this study will help find a cure for coronavirus
