Researchers Uncover Which Blood Type Is Most Resistant To COVID-19

In a Monday statement, the company said that preliminary results from over 750,000 participants have revealed clues as to why some people experience little to no symptoms from coronavirus, while others become gravely ill, according to Bloomberg.

Perhaps most interesting is that Type-O blood is also associated with a 66% reduction in the odds of developing severe malaria compared to the non-O blood types, according to a 2007 study.

This might explain why anti-malarial drugs have shown efficacy in treating COVID-19

Last week, peer reviewed research which analyzed the genes of more than 1,600 coronavirus patients in Italy and Spain who experienced respiratory failure suggested that blood type may play a role in the severity of the disease. The found that patients with Type-A blood were linked to a 50% increase in the likelihood they would require a ventilator. The results were similar to an earlier Chinese study regarding susceptibility to COVID-19.

7. Might also change the quote

Bloomberg does not mention quinine in its piece, that was a bit of reconstruction done by zerohedge.

6. Post the Bloomberg article

It does not include the claptrap about quinine that the this website does.

In fact, Bloomberg has an article lead at the bottom which states the exact opposite of any benefit to quinine.

4. Do not trust this too much

This might explain why Hydroxychloroquine and other anti-malarial drugs have shown efficacy in treating COVID-19


Hydroxychloriquine has been shown to have zero efficacy in many other studies. At best it might show that Type-O has properties with Covid-19 that also help explain why it has increased resistance to Malaria when treated with specific anti-Malarial drugs.

8. Hydroxychlroquine showed no efficiency in treating covid 19.

Preliminary results of large UK clinical trial just came out-it did no good whatsoever.
