The quest to find genes that drive severe COVID

Scientists have found 13 places in the human genome that may influence our susceptibility to a coronavirus infection or risk of severe COVID-19.Scientists have found 13 places in the human genome that may influence our susceptibility to a coronavirus infection or risk of severe COVID-19.

Your risk of being hospitalised with Covid or catching it in the first place could be written in your genes, a team of global researchers led by experts in Finland said.Your risk of being hospitalised with Covid or catching it in the first place could be written in your genes, a team of global researchers led by experts in Finland said.

An international study published Thursday, led partly by researchers from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, concludes that genetic factors increase the likelihood that someone will be infected with SARS-CoV-2 and develop a serious case.An international study published Thursday, led partly by researchers from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, concludes that genetic factors increase the likelihood that someone will be infected with SARS-CoV-2 and develop a serious case.
