Do those in this blood group catch the corona virus more easily?
The study conducted on Wuhan city, the epicenter of China’s COVID-19 outbreak, and 2 thousand new types of corona viruses in Shinchin, compared with healthy individuals, higher rates of new types of corona viruses in those with blood type A and heavier Trends to develop symptoms have been detected.

Çetiner: No scientific value
CNN has corona virus in A to Z program in TURK Answering related questions, Hematology Specialist Prof.Dr. Mustafa Çetiner, “Corona virus is transmitted through blood?” gave the following answer to the question:
” There is no basis for these questions. We have an example of Wuhan and Italy. The percentage of those who have a group of blood type in Wuhan is 31 percent. The number of group A who fell ill and was hospitalized was 37 percent. Then they say: the rate in the community is 31 percent, while the 37 percent hospitalized means that the group A is more risky. This is an observational result. It has no scientific value. Besides, can we change our blood group? There is a source of these opinions, but it is absolutely true. I believe that the statements regarding the report are very wrong. “
