Hello 

 

my Thai girl friend just  come from the hospital where she got a blood check to know her blood group ( 210 bahts, I thought that everything was

30 bahts for Thai people ) 

like her brother/ sisters , she is AB 

I have heard that in western countries, AB is rare ; how is it in Thailand ?  and she has no  rhesus ( + or - ) like in Europe ( for instance, I am A+ ),

just AB 

is it usual in Thailand that they don't give rhesus ( and, after all, is the rhesus important to know ) ? 

Thanks

Almost all Thais ate RH -.

Had she been RH - they would certainly have mentioned it.

 

Abour 9% of the Thai population are AB.

 

Blood grouping would be free (or 30 baht) at the hospital where she is registeted under the scheme if ordered by a doctor. If she just requested it for her own reasons then not coveted.

Generally its surprising in the west when you ask someone their blood group they don't know it

I'm not sure what mine is, I think it's O something but I really can't remember and neither can my parents, I've been meaning to get it 'typed' for years but never got around to it.

Sorry I misspoke, meant to say most are RH+. It is less than 1% of Thais who are RH pos.

O is good apparently, have made a note for when I get my next 6 monthly blood check to ask for them to check what mine is, the reason I say that is because I read that a recent study found that symptomatic individuals with blood types B and AB who were Rh positive were more likely to test positive for COVID-19, while those with blood type O were less likely to test positive.
