Scientists and researchers from the University of Utah Health who participated in an international study of Chinese men that recently had COVID-19. The researchers found that there is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 is in semen, or in the testes of men. Unfortunately, the study wasn't comprehensive enough to fully rule out that COVID-19 can be transmitted through sex, but no evidence suggested that it was possible.

James M. Hotaling, the co-author of the study, said, "The fact that in this small, preliminary study that it appears the virus that causes COVID-19 doesn't show up in the testes or semen could be an important finding. If a disease like COVID-19 were sexually transmittable, that would have major implications for disease prevention and could have serious consequences for a man's long-term reproductive health."

The study was published in Fertility & Sterility, which is a peer-reviewed journal published by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine. The study took 34 Chinese men who tested positive for COVID-19 and had mild symptoms. The lab tests found that there were no traces of COVID-19 in semen samples, which means the virus cannot be sexually transmitted. This is quite vital information because if COVID-19 was transmissible through sexual intercourse, there could be far more cases of COVID-19 than healthcare workers are currently anticipating.

Jingtao Guo, a postdoctoral scientist at the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah and co-author of the study, said, "If the virus is in the testes but not the sperm it can't be sexually transmitted".
