The novel Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been found to exist in seminal fluid and can possibly be transmitted through sexual intercourse.

This was discovered by Chinese researchers reports the wall street journal.

Traces were found in samples of patients in China who donated days after their symptoms had subsided.

One of the patients in the study, at Shangqui Municipal Hospital in Henan Province, tested positive for Covid-19 in his semen 16 days after coming down with the virus and three days after clinical recovery.

“Abstinence or condom use might be considered as preventative means for these patients,” the study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, said.

Health officials had already warned against sex for people who had the disease but as a result of the close contact not babies the disease was an STD.

However, the result of the new research has led officials to believe that the virus could also be transmitted via the semen.
