Rh factor affects the risk of COVID-19 infection

Scientists conducted another study in several countries where coronavirus was spreading too rapidly.

According to them, such rapid increase was detected in 126 countries, where the majority of people have negative Rh factor. The list of such states includes the USA, Australia, Switzerland, Austria, Great Britain, Brazil, Spain, New Zealand.

The pandemic in these countries had “explosive” nature. Scientists noted that people with Rh negative factor have high risk of developing certain cardiovascular, respiratory, and some other immune-related diseases.

These diseases increase the likelihood of infection with coronavirus, and can also occur during the COVID-19.

In the world, only 8% of people have a negative Rh factor, but in some countries this figure reaches 17-19%. In the United States, for example, 15% of the population is Rh negative.
