Scientists in Poland may have discovered a gene that more than doubles the risk of severe COVID-19.
Researchers from the Medical University of Bialystok in Poland found that the gene is the fourth most important factor determining how a person suffers from COVID-19, after age, weight, and gender. 
This gene is located on chromosome 3, one of the 23 pairs of chromosomes in humans, and is present in around 14% of the Polish population, compared to 8-9% in Europe, and 27% in India.
