Hubei Province Government’s official website posted a notice to warn male citizens that coronavirus could impact male fertility. After the news was exposed by Luthur, Hubei Province deleted the official announcement.
The coronavirus is mainly caused by lung and immune system damage. In theory, new coronavirus infection may also cause testicular damage. Therefore, the team of Professor Li Yufeng from the Reproductive Medicine Center of Tongji Medical College of the Chinese University of Science and Technology reminded the public that males infected with the coronavirus should do fertility examination after recovery.
