Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire has said that there is a high possibility of coronavirus being transmitted se.xually. 

Ehanire made this statement during an emergency press briefing in Abuja on Thursday March 26. He said; 

“I believe that if a person is positive, the virus can be transmitted se.xually.”

There is however a lot of research ongoing on the pattern of transmission of the disease. While some some scientists have claimed that the virus cannot be transmitted through se.xual intercourse except via oral se.x, Scientist Jessica Justman told The Guardian UK that they are not seeing patterns that indicate se.xual transmission.

Justman however advised romantic partners to steer clear of each other when there is a confirmation of being infected with the virus.
