German Scientists Identify 28 New Covid-19 Severity Risk Genes

A team of German scientists has identified 28 new risk genes, bringing the total to 51, associated with increased severity in Covid-19 infections. COVID-19 severity is influenced by various factors, including age, pre-existing conditions, and genetic factors. Since the beginning of the pandemic, researchers have been exploring the connection between genetics and the likelihood of severe Covid-19 cases. This discovery adds to our understanding of the complex factors contributing to the disease's severity.
