No scientific prove that the Coronavirus infection is sexually transmissible- Presidential taskforce on COVID-19

Nigeria - The Presidential Taskforce on COVID19 says there is no scientific proof to back up claims that the novel Coronavirus can be transmitted sexually.






There have been reports in some Nigerian media space that the virus can remain in the testis of infected males even after treatment.

Reacting to this claim, the National Coordinator of the COVID19 taskforce, Dr Aliyu Sani, said there is no scientific proof at the moment to back up the claim. According to Sani, although the world was still in the early days of the disease, no research had proven that it could be transmitted through sex.

“At the moment, there is no evidence of sexual transmission when it comes to COVID-19, but of course, we are still in the early days of the disease. The same thing happened in the case of Ebola, when subsequently it was proven that it was sexually transmissible. 


There was a small test case series of 10 women, who had severe COVID-19 and genital secretions were negative of COVID-19 virus. I think it is still in the early days, I will just say, watch this space.” he told newsmen at the daily press briefing on Wednesday April 22nd.
