According to scientists, the severity of coronavirus may be due to the genetic characteristics of patients. The contagiousness of the virus for different patients may also be associated with this.

According to TASS, such data was shared by the head of the laboratory of human molecular genetics, professor of the Belgorod State National Research University (NRU BelGU) Mikhail Churnosov. According to him, about 90% of human diseases are related to genetics. However, it also causes a predisposition to infectious diseases. For this reason, when a coronavirus enters the body, it causes serious diseases in some people, while others tolerate it more easily.

It is also known that people with a second blood type more at risk for severe coronavirus. Such patients are also more prone to diabetes, hypertension and obesity, aggravating the course of coronavirus.
