Reports: Doctors Found Coronavirus In Semen Of Patients

Chandran |May 08, 2020

Most of us know that the coronavirus spread among us through the air. However, recent finding reveals that it can survive in the male reproductive system.

Scientists have found the virus in one patient’s semen. However, they are still unclear if coronavirus can be contracted once contact with the semen is made. Even though months have passed since the coronavirus was first put under the microscope, scientists still have a lot of questions regarding this disease. They include the way they enter our body, how they spread and what ways can we unintentionally contract them now that they've found coronavirus in semen.

Can the virus survive in semen?

Over the span of the pandemic, this virus was found on the surface of many place/matter, including feces, saliva, urine,... and they survive and persist for days. Recently, a new study available on JAMA Network Open even suggests that semen can also be a hospitable environment for the virus. Doctors have examined the semen of 38 make patients in a Hubei province’s hospital. All 36 of them, aged from 15 to 59, are SARS-CoV-2 positive. The results came and the doctors have found genetic matters of the coronavirus in 6 of the patients’ semen. 4 of them are still under treatment. Meanwhile, the remaining 2 have recovered.

However, this does not mean that the new coronavirus can be contracted through sexual activities. Viruses living in semen do not mean that they will survive once they enter the sexual partner’s body. There's no guarantee that they can live outside of the male reproductive system. Stanley Perman, microbiologist professor at Iowa University explained:

“This is an interesting discovery. However, we must first determine whether this is the virus or just a part of it”

According to him, there is instead of coronavirus in semen, it was only a part of RNA that they’ve found in the examination. For further explaination, RNA molecules play an active role within cells by catalyzing biological reactions.

There is a possibility that what they've found is just RNA of the virus.

Unlike Zika that can spread through blood, the coronavirus mainly travels nasally or orally. That appears like a relief until coronavirus in semen was found. Until now, no concrete proof has proven that you can get the virus by having sex. As of today, most cases are from airborne contraction.

Here's a clip of how the virus naturally spreads so you can stay safe. Check back at Starbiz for more updates on current news and hot issues!!
