Coronavirus Can Be Sexually Transmitted

Scientists have warned people to be more careful after discovering that coronavirus can be sexually transmitted.

Coronavirus can be passed on during sex, a new study suggests. Researchers claim that men who had recovered from the infection still had Covid-19 in their semen.

Experts suggest men should consider abstaining from lovemaking or use a condom to help halt the spread.

Chinese scientists analysed the output of 38 patients who had caught the illness – 15 who were still in hospital and 23 who had recovered.

Overall six men, or 16 per cent, had the virus SARS-CoV-2, which causes coronavirus, in their sperm sample – and two of them were already over their illness.

Scientists say it suggests the bug can persist much longer in the testes and could be spread later through sex.
