A team of researchers at Rome’s Spallanzani Hospital have found the presence of monkeypox in the sperm of 14 infected men out of 16 studied.

“This finding tells us that the presence of the virus in sperm is not a rare or random occurrence. The infection can be transmitted during sexual intercourse by direct contact with skin lesions, but our study shows that semen can also be a vehicle for infection.” said Spallanzani Hospital director Francesco Vaia. report
