>Blood type A 'more vulnerable'
A型血更易感新冠病毒?

People with Type A blood are significantly more likely to catch coronavirus than those with Type O, Chinese academics have found.
中国学者发现,A型血的人感染上新冠肺炎病毒的风险比O型血的人大得多。

The study in Wuhan also found those with Type A blood are more likely to die from COVID-19.
武汉的这一研究还发现,A型血的人患新冠肺炎后的死亡几率更高。

In the general population Type O blood (34%) is more common than A (32%).
从人口总体分布情况来看,O型血的人(34%)比A型血的人(32%)更多。

However, among COVID-19 patients, people with Type O accounted for just 25%, whereas Type A made up 41%.
但是在新冠肺炎患者中,O型血的人只占了25%,而A型血的人占了41%。

People with Type O blood made up a quarter (25%) of deaths in the research.
调查统计的死于新冠肺炎的患者中,O型血的人占了1/4(25%)。

Normally, Type O people make up 32% of people in Wuhan.

The controversial correlation has yet to be scrutinized by other academics in peer review and the researchers are unable to explain why infection varies by blood type.
这一富有争议的关联性还有待接受同行评审,研究人员也未能解释为什么不同血型的人感染新冠病毒的风险不同。
