I just saw a link to Zeberg and Pääbo (2020) The major genetic risk
factor for severe COVID-19 is inherited from Neandertals.[0] The
abstract follows:

| A recent genetic association study (Ellinghaus et al. 2020)
| identified a gene cluster on chromosome 3 as a risk locus for
| respiratory failure in SARS-CoV-2. Recent data comprising
| 3,199 hospitalized COVID-19 patients and controls reproduce
| this and find that it is the major genetic risk factor for
| severe SARS-CoV-2 infection and hospitalization (COVID-19
| Host Genetics Initiative). Here, we show that the risk is
| conferred by a genomic segment of ~50 kb that is inherited
| from Neandertals and occurs at a frequency of ~30% in south
| Asia and ~8% in Europe.

Maybe we ought to protect old people, those with serious health
problems, and carriers of this genetic sequence, and let everyone else
get on with their lives.
