There is a pre-peer review study of about 2100 Coronavirus patients in China and almost 3000 healthy people. (Relationship between the ABO Blood Group and the COVID-19 Susceptibility).
They found that people with blood type A were about 20% more likely to get coronavirus and people with blood type O were less likely to contract coronavirus.

keep in mind distribution of blood types in population!
Country Population O+ A+ B+ AB+ O− A− B− AB−
China 1,388,251,023 47.70% 27.80% 18.90% 5.00% 0.28% 0.19% 0.10% 0.03%
United States 326,481,533 37.40% 35.70% 8.50% 3.40% 6.60% 6.30% 1.50% 0.60%
20% more vulnerable isn’t great, but that’s fairly trivial compared to vast effects that you get from small behavioural changes.
Here is a much better explanation. Higher risk for A-type, but risk is relative….
