Health experts have warned recovering COVID-19 patients to avoid sex for 30 days or risk spreading the virus, since evidence has now proven that the virus can spread through semen.
Some researchers from Shangqiu Municipal Hospital took semen samples from 38 male coronavirus patients in China’s Henan province, and after careful analysis found out that 16% of the men had traces of the virus in their semen.
Aside from semen, coronavirus can also be found in respiratory particles, which means kissing could also be off the cards.
According to a report by The Mirror, Veerawat Manosutthi, a senior medical expert at the Thai Disease Control Department, advised that patients who have overcome COVID-19 should avoid getting intimate for 30 days, he even went ahead to warn them against kissing.
He said “Those who believe themselves to be free of the virus should use condoms when having sex.
“Kissing should also be avoided as it is also known that it can spread through the mouth.“
Another doctor, Dr. Simran Deo, a UK-based doctor at Zava UK, also said ”Conditions like coronavirus are spread through water or mucus droplets from the nose and mouth containing the virus. So things, like kissing, shaking hands, sharing food, and drink with someone, put people at an increased risk of passing on the infection.”
