British scientists have identified a version of a gene that may be associated with double the risk of lung failure from Covid-19.
The high-risk genetic variant is in a chromosome region that is also tied to double the risk of death in Covid-19 patients under age 60.
Around 60% of people with South Asian ancestry carry the high-risk version of the gene and the discovery may partly explain the high number of deaths seen in some British communities, and the devastation wrought by Covid-19 in the Indian subcontinent.
