Found: genes that sway the course of the coronavirus

Scientist have pinned down common gene variants that are linked to the most severe cases of COVID19 and the reason why some people get very sick and others show only mild symptoms. This discovery leads to discovery of existing drugs that could be repurposed to help sick patients.
