The novel coronavirus pneumonia MESHD pneumonia HP
(COVID-19) is a contagious acute respiratory infectious disease MESHD
whose causative agent has been demonstrated to be a novel virus of the coronavirus family, SARSCoV-2. A recent pre-print study has showed a heme attack on the 1-beta chain of hemoglobin by COVID19. Beta-thalassemia MESHD
results of a default in the hemoglobin beta- chain synthesis. 1,5% global population are heterozygotes for this disease. In this study, by a multiple linear regression, we have analyzed the evolution of COVID-19 infection MESHD
in three Italian regions (Puglia, Sardinia, Sicilia) with different beta-thalassemic prevalences SERO
, in order to search a link. The results have showed that betathalassemic heterozygote population prevalence SERO
is correlated to immunity against COVID-19, by a regression. This paper is only for academic discussion, the hypotheses and conclusions needs to be confirmed by further research .
