Wuhan doctors warn coronavirus could cause male infertility

By | March 15, 2020

Chinese doctors warn that the coronavirus may lead to testicular damage and male infertility.

The report came from a team led by Li Yufeng, a professor from the Center for Reproductive Medicine of Tongji Medical College in Wuhan, where the virus originated.

The team published the report on the hospital website, but it was taken down after it was widely shared on Chinese social media.

So far, no study has confirmed that the coronavirus can damage male testicles and adversely hurt male fertility. The team suggested men who get the virus might consider getting tests on their semen quality.

So far, over 2,300 people in the United States have contracted the coronavirus, and at least 50 have died. President Trump declared a national emergency on Friday to combat the spread of the virus.
