Can coronavirus be sexually transmitted? COVID-19 will certainly be a sexually associated infection. If you’re close enough to have sex it’s likely that you’re close enough to transmit COVID-19 through water droplets. Kissing is one of the main routes of infection for COVID-19. Even if you don’t kiss your partner, COVID-19 can be transmitted through breathing near each other – and you’re likely to be touching the same surfaces as other people in the bedroom. It is also likely that COVID-19 can be found in some other bodily fluids.
