Coronavirus Update - Loss of Smell & Taste

It is now well established that loss of the senses of smell and taste are symptoms that can be associated with Covid-19/Coronavirus infection. Although a minority of affected individuals may suffer long-term, the good news is that the majority of patients will notice improvements within 3 weeks. 

There is the potential to administer some treatment in a small number of patients, but for the majority, supportive treatment and encouraging the neural recovery of the olfactory system is the only way forwards. For this, I would recommend ‘Smell Training’. This subject is covered very well in 2 excellent websites/support groups, namely: Fifthsense and Abscent.
