As people all over the world struggle to readjust their daily lives to cope with the impact of the novel coronavirus, numerous suggestions are being proferred to help deal with the times we are in.

The virus has infected more than 350, 000 people globally and left about 15, 000 dead with some 22, 000 cases of recoveries recorded.

Key among the proposals made so far to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 is social distancing. Since the virus is spread once persons come into contact with droplets from an infected person, many health bodies and practitioners have advocated ‘self-isolation’ or social distancing to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading the virus.

This has significantly altered the sex lives of many people around the world. Couples have been advised to desist from kissing or touching or cuddling their partners.

But the New York Department of Health in the United States have posited a solution to resolve the dilemma of satisfying your sexual needs. Masturbation!

According to a document sighted by ABC News, the New York Health Department advanced, “You are your safest sex partner,” adding “Masturbation will not spread COVID-19, especially if you wash your hands (and any sex toys) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after.”

The document also cautioned against having sex with people outside of your isolation zone.

“Anyone outside your household? Avoid”

The Department also urged individuals to resort to “Video dates, sexting or chat rooms” as alternative options.
