CNN reports that coronavirus’s sexual transmissibility hasn’t been rigorously studied, although it’s a highly contagious respiratory illness that spreads through droplets like coughs, sneezes and spit.

“The sexual health implications of these recommendations have received little attention, even though it appears that all forms of in-person sexual contact carry risk for transmission of the virus,” said Dr. Jack Turban, study lead author and resident at Harvard Medical School, where he studies the mental health of transgender youth.

Sex puts partners within close proximity, so partners are likely to be exposed to those droplets. And since an estimated 35% of coronavirus patients are asymptomatic, sex could provide the prime conditions for infection.
