Abstain from sex for 30 days to avoid spreading COVID-19 – Researchers warn survivors of disease

Health experts have warned COVID-19 patients who have tested negative and are recovering to desist from having sex for minimum of 30 days to avoid spreading the virus.

Recall, research had shown that the virus could be found in the sperm of of infected persons.

Some researchers from Shangqiu Municipal Hospital had taken 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.

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.”
