People with blood type O have a lower chance of being infected with or developing serious illness from COVID-19, a study says. Research published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine looked at more than 225,000 people who had been tested for COVID-19 between Jan. 15 and June 30, 2020. Scientists found that people with blood type O negative had a 2.1% chance of testing positive for coronavirus—the lowest probability among all blood groups. The highest probability was in the blood group B positive, at 4.2%. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.

This Blood Type Resulted in "Slightly Lower Risk" of Infection TYPE "O" 

The researchers found that people with blood type O had a lower chance of severe COVID illness or death compared to people with other blood types.

Additionally, people with Rh-negative blood were found to have a lower probability of both infection and serious COVID-19 illness than people with Rh-positive blood.

"The O and Rh− blood groups may be associated with a slightly lower risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection and severe COVID-19 illness," the researchers concluded.
