(CNN) – People with Type O blood may have an advantage in the global pandemic.

Researchers say they may be less prone to catching coronavirus and that if they get it, they are less likely to get really sick.

A Danish study found that of more than 7,400 people tested for coronavirus, only 38% tested positive for type O.

But about 41% of the population has Type O blood.

A separate Canadian study found that among 95 patients seriously ill with COVID-19, a higher proportion of patients with blood type A or AB had longer stays in the intensive care unit than those with type O or B. These intensive care stays lasted 4.5 Days longer on average.

Research provides further evidence that blood type may play a role in a person’s susceptibility to infection and the severity of their illness.

The reasons are not clear and experts say more studies are needed
