Coronavirus possibly sex transmittable, says scientists

Coronavirus have been detected in the semen of recovered patients, something scientists have raised as alarming…


Coronavirus could be sexually transmitted even after recovery, scientists have therefore warn recovered patients to abstain or at least use protection in order to not pass on the disease.


The study, published in JAMA Network Open, involved 38 patients undergoing treatment for severe COVID-19 disease at Shangqiu Municipal Hospital in Henan province.


Fifteen of the patients provided a semen sample during the acute phase of their illness and 23 shortly after recovering. In four of the 15 patients with acute disease and in two of the 23 recovering patients, SARS-CoV-2 RNA was found in the semen samples.




Ebola virus remained detectable in the semen of some survivors for more than three years and Ebola virus transmission through sexual intercourse can occur months after the patient has recovered, and scientist fear the case might be a bit similar in COVID-19.
