BREAKING NEWS! Latest Research Published by Chinese Scientists Say Coronavirus Might Render Certain Male Patients Infertile
A latest coronavirus research
by medical scientists from Nanjing Medical University and Suzhou Hospital lead by Dr Jianqing Wang, Head of the Department of Urology, at Suzhou Hospital say that certain males affected by the SARS-Cov2 coronavirus
which causes the Covid-19 disease might likely become infertile
even if they recover from the infection.
According to the new researched published in medrxiv, an open source online medical journal, the coronavirus
typically attacks the ACE2 (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2)) receptors in human tissues.
The team of urology researchers that comprised of Dr Jianqing Wang, Dr Caibin Fan, Dr Kai Li, Dr Yanhong Ding and Dr Wei Lu focused primarily on renal and testicular tissues as these were also ‘rich’ with ACE2 receptors especially the renal tubular cells, Leydig cells and cells in seminiferous ducts in the testis.
The study results showed that the new coronavirus
expressed potent pathogenicity to both renal and testicular tissues with resultant lesions.
The damaged testicular tissues could lead to infertility
in most of the male patients.
The researchers advised that during drug treatments with coronavirus
infected patients, clinicians should pay careful attention to renal function evaluation as some of the antivirals which known to exhibit renal toxicity can aggravate the and virus damaged kidneys.
The researchers also advised that all clinicians pay attention to the risk of testicular lesions in patients during hospitalization and later clinical follow-ups, especially the assessment and appropriate intervention in male patients' fertility.
The research was based on the datasets of 146 male patients in three different settings.
Thailand Medical News
notes that the research
has yet to have been peer reviewed.
However, the results on this research
could have large implications and effect on the thousands of male patients infected with the coronavirus.

There are more than 17 preprint, peer-reviewed studies and non-peer reviewed studies that all show that the coronavirus binds to human cells via the ace2-receptors but this is only one way, a new study shows that it has an even more second manner that is even more potent : https://www.thailandmedical.news/news/breaking-latestcoronavirus-research-reveals-that-the-virus-has-mutated-gene-similar-to-hiv-and-is-1,000-times-more-potent-

We are also in the midst of both criminal and civil actions against the site cum facebook fact checker in the US and the two Italian media that termed our article as fake news. The whole thing issue was triggered by a so Italian 'scientific writer' who has no knowledge about medical or biological sciences but writing articles in Italy and conning the Italian population. On his facebook and instagram pages he claims to fight against cyberbullying but himself is doing it. We will be holding a press conference on the coming Monday and also lodging a protest with the Italian Embassy and Italian Trade Commission and will also be disclosing full details of this individual and the publications that he writes for online.
