MDcovid - patients with Covid-19 share their DNA with researchers

It is a crowdsourcing initiative:  Patients with severe, mild or no symptoms of COVID-19 are able to upload their genetic data from 23andMe, Ancestry, FamilyTreeDNA, LivingDNA, MyHeritage, HomeDNA or from other sources.  The goal is to compare the DNA of people who have serious cases of COVID-19 with those with mild or no symptoms.
