General practitioner of the European Medical Center Anna Kulinkovich told how the novel coronavirus and the human blood group can be interconnected. It is reported by the Prime agency. She noted that scientists continue to conduct research to identify the features of coronavirus infection, however, there is no need to make unambiguous conclusions on the relationship between the blood group and the course of the disease. At the same time, according to her, most often COVID-19 was found during the pandemic in people with blood groups II and IV. The latter, as the doctor specified, cope with the disease the hardest. Kulinkovich added that the least positive tests for coronavirus were found in the owners of the I blood group. In addition, the doctor said that during the study, Chinese scientists determined that among the dead, patients with blood group II were most often encountered. “It should be borne in mind that in different countries the figures showing the relationship between the disease and the blood group differ. So other characteristics of the body, which are still being established, can play a role,” concluded Kulinkovich. In total, since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 110.3 million cases have been registered in the world, over 85.1 million people have recovered, and more than 2.4 million patients have died. More than 4 million people with COVID-19 have been identified in Russia. The Russian Federation was the first country in the world to register a vaccine against COVID-19.
