HepC wrt Covid19

Hello,

What do you guys know about how we, finally cured of HCV, folk are doing with Covid19?

I’ve read blood type O is a factor and Vitamin D Is as well.

I was treated 4 times and finally cured with 26weeks of Harvoni.  Currently I have developed a case of Liver Cancer.

I’ve read covid is more of a concern for people with A, B and AB

“Among the COVID-19 positive, they found fewer people with blood type O and more people with A, B, and AB types. The study results suggest that people with blood types A, B, or AB may be more likely to be infected with COVID-19 than people with type O.”
