Coronavirus Is Found in Semen of Covid-19 Patients

Men who have recovered from coronavirus should abstain from sex in order to avoid passing the virus on via their semen, a new study suggests.

Patients in China who donated samples several days after virus symptoms had faded were found to show evidence of Covid-19.

The findings have left scientists worried that the deadly disease could be sexually transmitted, raising the prospect of health chiefs advising people to avoid having sex for a set time after the end of their symptoms.

The Chinese study did not prove that the virus could be transmitted through sex – it only suggested it was a possibility.

But the finding prompted the team to warn that abstaining from sex while infected – and during recovery – would likely be a wise decision until the truth is uncovered.  

So far 3.7million cases of COVID-19 – the disease caused by the coronavirus – have been reported globally.
