You Must Avoid Kissing For One Month, Especially Sex – Expert Warns COVID-19 Survivors

Mr Veerawat Manosutthi, a senior medical expert at the Thai Disease Control Department has advised that patients who have overcome COVID-19 should avoid getting intimate for 30 days, and has even warned against kissing.
Zebra News gathered that Manosutthi’s advice is based on a recent study, which found that some men have traces of the virus in their semen.
“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.” He said.
In the study, researchers from Shangqiu Municipal Hospital took semen samples from 38 male coronavirus patients in China’s Henan province.
The team analysed the samples on January 26 and again on February 16, and found that 16% of the men had traces of the virus in their semen.
“The presence of viruses in semen may be more common than currently understood, and traditional nonsexually transmitted viruses should not be assumed to be totally absent in genital secretions.” The study, published in JAMA noted.
Aside from semen, coronavirus can also be found in respiratory particles, which means kissing could also be off the cards.
Another doctor, Dr. Simran Deo, a UK-based doctor at Zava UK, 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.”
