Ancestry update Released – Genetic Clue

As Ron Park reminds us, Ancestry’s COVID-19 study was launched to look for genetic clues and to find how an individual responds to the novel coronavirus that can cause COVID-19. Nearly 600,000 people participated in the study of Ancestry’s personal discoveries project. The company is encouraging the community to continue their engagement and support.

At the moment, the company is outset to look at the data. Ancestry’s Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Catherine Ball, is leading the team. Some of Ancestry’s team observations include.

  • The average age of the people was 53.
  • 67.5% of females, 32.1%male, and 0.35% of other gender did participate.
  • 94% of people fully completed the survey, within the existing conditions and the preexisting medical condition at the movement.

When Ancestry looked at the study of the participants who reported COVID-19 vulnerability risks, Ancestry found that:

Students also participated in and took a test on COVID-19. About 18.5% of students took this test, so a good number of students were involved in this study.

12% of the students who participated in the report were experiencing outbreaks of COVID-19.

The probability was that 13.4% of students were positive from tested students. So, Ancestry update is trying to give out information that may help.
