Group 0 can be protective against this virus. after some results, it was concluded that these patients have between 18 and 9 percent less of being infected with the virus, which increases to 26 percent for healthcare workers who are more exposed to the infection. In contrast, patients with blood group A are 50 percent more likely to need assisted ventilation or oxygen.
