The coronavirus is an ongoing global pandemic, which is responsible for the death of over 23,000, with over 510,000 people also reported to have been infected by the virus.

The WHO has advised that people observe social distancing to reduce the spread of the virus, and Osagie Ehanire, during an emergency press briefing in Abuja has disclosed that there is a high possibility of coronavirus being transmitted sexually. He said;

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

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 sexual intercourse except via oral sex, Scientist Jessica Justman told The Guardian UK that they are not seeing patterns that indicate sexual transmission.
