Ebola May Persist In Men’s Semen For Nine Months

(By Afp)

The Ebola virus may persist in some men's semen for nine months after they were initially infected, far longer than previously thought, according to preliminary research out Wednesday.

The first long-term study of its kind, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, adds to growing evidence that Ebola can linger in the body, causing health problems for months or even years.

The findings raise new health concerns for the survivors of the Ebola epidemic that has ravaged West Africa since late 2013, killing more than 11,000 people in the deadliest outbreak since the virus was first identified in 1976.READ MORE OF THIS STORY ON UK DAILY MAIL
