A few preliminary studies have shown that individuals with O type are at the lowest risk of contracting the coronavirus among all blood groups.

Several early studies have suggested that people with O blood type are less likely to be hospitalized and test positive for COVID-19 than people with A, B, or AB blood types.

In a new preprint report, researchers collected the data of nearly 2,000 patients hospitalized for COVID-19 in Spain and Italy. They found that people with type A blood had an increased risk for respiratory failure while type O blood had a protective effect.

However, this does not mean those with type O blood are completely safe; some people with type O blood still experienced respiratory failure. However, for people who know they have type A blood, they should continue to take extra precautions to prevent the virus.

Biotechnology Company also has preliminary data on more than 700,000 individuals where it was found that people with O blood type are between 9 to 18 percent less likely to test positive for COVID-19.

Even among people who work that increase their exposure to the coronavirus, like healthcare and frontline workers, those with O blood types were 13 to 26 percent less likely to test positive.

These results have not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal, and the study is still ongoing.
