This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes, 60, has shared a report on Twitter, which claims those with blood type A could be more at risk of contracting the deadly coronavirus, which has affected over 200,000 worldwide.

In view of his one million Twitter followers, the host shared a report from South China Morning Post, which has the headline, ‘People with blood type A may be more vulnerable to coronavirus, China study finds’.

The report claimed research in Wuhan and Shenzhen indicates patients with the blood group had higher rate of infection and tended to get more severe symptoms.

They added: “Those with type O had a significantly lower risk for the infectious disease compared to others.”

The information is from a preliminary study of patients in China who were tested positive for the disease.

Despite their findings, they added more work is needed for greater results.

Eamonn shared the post with the caption: “Well not good news for me… #coronavirus #BloodType.”

The This Morning host has shared various posts regarding the coronavirus on his public page in recent weeks.

Last week, he shared an interview from BBC’s The Nolan Show, where an A&E consultant told listeners how the virus has impacted the NHS.

The latter urged people to stay at home as he commented on the pressures of treating all patients in hospitals.

Eamonn commented: “If you think #Coronavirus has no chance of affecting you… This spells out the situation and may make u think again.

“All of us Old and YOUNG are in this together and together we can help each other.

“Stay safe and well everyone. This is a Doctor’s story.”

He turned to his wife and said: “We had an extravaganza planned for you today, but we couldn’t do it because we couldn’t bring people into the studio because of the coronavirus situation.

“All the people who we approached and said no … it’s the thought that counts.”

Ruth added: “They decorated my dressing room this morning.

“I came in, it’s very quiet everywhere, and I opened my dressing room door and it’s full of balloons and happy birthday banners, and glitter.”
