The Chief Executive Officer of Noble Trust Hospital, Dr George Donkor has debunked claims that sex protects people from contracting coronavirus.
According to him, the claim is medically unfounded arguing that it’s not true. He admonished the general public to disregard such claims.
“It is medically unfounded that sex prevents coronavirus. This is untrue,” he said while speaking on Nyankonton Mu Nsem in an interview on Rainbow Radio.
He explained that factors that help boost the immune system include good sleep, reduction of stress and good blood circulation.
Dr George Donkor noted that what “very good sex” does is to facilitate these benefits and not to prevent COVID-19.
He divulged that good sex helps in reducing heart problems, lowers the risk of heart attack and improves sleep pattern and reduce general pains.
Stressing on the benefits of good sex the medical practioner indicated that it produces dopamine a type of neurotransmitter which triggers happiness and excitement, and when you are happier, your immune system becomes strong and much well and very good.
He advised people to adopt good eating habits so they will enjoy the full benefits of good sex. Mr Donkor asserted that you cannot replace healthy meals and medication with sex.
