Abstract EN

Background: ABO blood groups may play a major role in the way COVID-19 spreads among same family members.

Objective: To determine the trends in the spread of COVID-19 in families according to their ABO blood groups.

Results: Two hundred forty-four subjects exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus participated in this study, 52 % males, age 29.64 ± 18.78 years.

Forty-four percent of subjects have blood group A, 9 % were B, 7 % were AB and 32 % were O.

Thirty-eight percent of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) positive subjects have blood group A and 37 % have blood group O.

There was a significant association between the blood group of family members and the transmission of COVID-19, p ˂ 0.05.

There was also a significant relationship between the loss of taste, smell or both senses and anorexia, p ˂0.05.
