What's your blood group?

A+ here.

But I remember reading that Asians have a significantly higher incidence of blood group A than Europeans, so maybe that has impacted the stats and created a bias?

Clutching at straws again!

not peer reviewed, very prelimerary.

several weak points. This is not a causality but a correlative study. Too little subjects, all from two cities in China.

The sample sizes is my biggest issue, for good data on blood groups you need 50000-100000 data points due to overrepresentation of some blood groups within participants.

Summary: It’s not fake news but only slightly indicative at best. No reason to assume A+ is more at risk at this point.
