The rapid rise of the new variant of the corona virus, Omicron, has raised concerns around the world.

Omicron victims have died in both Britain and the United States. At the same time, more than 170 new types of Omicron infections have been reported in India. Meanwhile, a new study published in Fertility and Infertility says that Covid-19 also affects sperm count and sperm motility in men.

According to a study by Imperial College London, the coronavirus has been implicated in sperm count and sperm motility. The sperm quality of men has been deteriorating for several months after recovering from Covid-19 disease. However, research has shown that sperm itself is not contagious.

Within one month of recovering from the corona, a study of a sample of 35 men found that sperm motility had decreased by 60 percent and sperm count by 37 percent.

Significantly, women who wish to become pregnant may have poor sperm count and sperm quality for the first few months after conception-19.
