I’m not a doctor and I don’t even play one on TV. But I’m all about new information when it comes to the pandemic that’s putting a damper on pretty much everything right now…

Business Insider reports there were recorded differences in the need for a ventilator and dialysis among the types.

I have no idea what my own blood type is, but I’m sort of curious now.
