“Coronavirus is not the flu, the quality of sperm does not deteriorate after the flu,” said public health expert Dr Giorgi Pkhakadze. According to Dr Pkhakadze, out of 100 co-infected men, 30 will not be able to have children. “Unfortunately, the quality of sperm in covid-infected people is very low. This is not written by the yellow press, it is about specific studies. It's a very serious problem, it's definitely not the flu. The quality of sperm does not deteriorate after the flu. There is a difference. I don’t even know what language to explain in, so I’m speaking simply and clearly - 30 out of 100 men cannot have a baby after the coronavirus. This has been proven by scientific studies in more than 30 countries around the world. Because of this, stress, depression and suicide occur. Therefore, I say, take care of yourself and follow the rules as much as possible, ”- Dr Pkhakadze said. At the same time, Dr Pkhakadze also touched upon the medical staff, noting that there are serious challenges in connection with the spread of omicron. “Unfortunately, compared to other strains, Omicron is extremely contagious. Therefore, it is better to use two medical masks or masks of the FFP2 or N95 type,” Dr Pkhakadze added in an interview with Georgian Times.
