COVID-19: This one blood group is less vulnerable to coronavirus

Are people with'O blood group less vulnerable to COVID-19 infection? Here's what new study suggests

The province recorded a total of 1,279 new cases on Saturday, for a total of 92,297 coronavirus cases in Quebec.

The case numbers are steadily increasing daily, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

Unlike previous rises, this time it appears that no region is safe. The lure of new lawsuits in the Midwest has not given up, and now places like the Northeast have been relatively stable since spring, with cases on the rise. The daily tally of new cases has gradually come down since then but has started to climb again in recent weeks.

Lead author Dr Mypinder Sekhon, of the University of British Columbia, said: "Of particular importance as we continue to traverse the pandemic, we now have a wide range of survivors who are exiting the acute part of Covid-19, but we need to explore mechanisms by which to risk stratify those with longer-term effects".

He added that it's not safe yet to say the country is "on the road to essentially getting out of this".

Though the average of 700 coronavirus deaths a day the United States remains lower than the daily tolls of 1,000 in July and August, University of Washington researchers project more than 2,300 Americans could die daily by mid-January.

A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than one million people worldwide.


Earlier on Friday, President Donald Trump said seniors would be the first to get any vaccine once one is approved.

"This is a very complicated science and sometimes, things don't work the way you want it to", Collins told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

The cases were mostly clustered in NY, with minor explosions in places like Washington State, Louisiana and IL. The province has seen a steady increase in hospitalizations this past week.

Meanwhile, COVID-19 has devastated the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, with the disease infecting more than 10% of the tribe and killing at least 81 of them, according to the memo. Most results were negative, with just 7,422 tests returning positive.

"They go insane when I say it", he told a crowd in North Carolina.

The study backs World Health Organization guidance for regular and thorough hand washing to limit transmission of the virus, which has infected almost 40 million people around the world since it first emerged in China late past year.
