People with allergic conditions including hay fever, asthmas and eczema have an up to 40% lower risk of COVID-19 infection, study finds

People with allergic conditions such as hay fever have a lower risk of being infected with COVID-19, a new study suggests.

Researchers from Queen Mary University of London looked at more than 16,000 adults in the UK between May 2020 and February 2021

They found that hay fever and eczema sufferers are nearly 25 percent less likely to contract the virus.

What’s more, people with asthma were almost 40 percent less likely to be infected, even if they used steroid inhalers.AA


Sounds like Neanderthal genes, which can carry strong innate immunity, could be in play. ABN
