Summary

Introduction: Coronavirus pandemic has been the subject of a large number of publications, some of which have shown an increased risk of contracting Covid-19 in carriers of blood group A.
Aims: In this study we looked at the profile of blood group phenotype of a series of Tunisian patients with covid-19 admitted to Abderrahman Mami hospital in Ariana .
Methods: Our study included 51 Tunisian patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection admitted to Abderrahmane Mami hospital between late march 2020 and early May 2020. The distribution of blood groups in Covid-19 patients was compared with that of a control group of 1506 patients with no Covid-19 infection as well as with the distribution of blood groups in a population of 63375 voluntary blood donors.
Results: Our series, although limited in size, showed a higher prevalence of blood group A among Covid-19 patients, statistically significant compared to ABO blood group distribution among Tunisian blood donors and among a control group of patients without Covid -19.
Conclusion: these results are in line with data from the literature, particularly on larger series in China
