Dementia gene doubles risk of contracting Covid-19, study finds
Scientists are excited, saying they may now be able to pinpoint how the gene causes vulnerability
A faulty gene linked to dementia doubles the risk of developing coronavirus, a new study has suggested.
Researchers linked the fault, found in people of European ancestry, to a greater risk of the virus, even when they had not developed dementia.
The finding that people may be genetically predisposed to suffer from Covid-19 heralds the prospect of one day developing a genetic treatment that helps patients to overcome the infection...
