Academic of the Russian Academy of Sciences Gennadiy Sukhikh stated about the possibility of the coronavirus transmission by sexual activities as Interfax reported.

“The detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus in semen samples of 5% men with active form of infection or in the stage of recovering might point out the possibility of infection transmission by sexual activities; however, this assumption needs further consideration,” Sukhikh stated.

Moreover, he stated that ‘the virus has less serious influence during the pregnancy than other coronaviruses; however, preterm delivery and low birth weight (of a baby) are the most common consequences of SARS-CoV-2’.

The number of newly infected includes 535 children and 529 doctors. 570,153 people got infected in Ukraine since the beginning of the pandemic. 259,079 recovered (+8,096 over 24 hours), 10,112 passed away (+256).
