Dr Bridget Okoeguale, Director, Department
of Public Health, gave the advice during an
interview with News Agency of Nigeria
(NAN).She said
“There are many literatures that say that
after men are infected, when the virus is
found in the blood, it tends to stay in the
semen for about seven weeks to three
“What we did according to the WHO
protocol is that we made sure that when
men are discharged they are given enough
cond•ms, if they cannot abstain for that
“We advise them to abstain from s•x but
where they cannot abstain, they are
provided cond•ms and after the
(abstinence) period, we double test to
sure they are free”
“We are not advising people not to go to
club or bar but if you have to just
that you must keep your hands clean, avoid
contact with as many people as possible.
