Researchers find two points in the human genome associated with an increased risk of respiratory failure in patients with coronavirus. These genetic changes are in people who have a second blood group.

A new experiment showed that patients with blood group A (second) most often find themselves connected to a ventilator, if they get coronavirus, their risks are 50% higher than others. A study conducted by doctors in Germany and Norway is yet another confirmation that people with this particular blood group may be more susceptible to COVID-19.

The authors found two points in the human genome that were associated with an increased risk of coronavirus complications. One such item is the gene that determines the blood group.
