Presidential Taskforce Of Convid-19; "No Scientific Prove That Coronavirus Infection Is Transmissible"

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

Reports has been in some Nigerian media space that the virus can remain in the testis of infected males even after treatment.

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.

The National Coordinator of the COVID19 taskforce, Dr Aliyu Sani, said there is no scientific proof at the moment to back up the claim

In his words :

“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
