  • Long-haul COVID-19 and Smell Loss - Explanation & Next Steps


    In this episode of EUFOREA News, host Dr David Bull as he explores the extraordinary symptom that many people have been suffering from after they've been struck down by COVID-19.

    Dr Bull is joined by Professor Basile Landis, Associate Physician, Head of Rhinology and Olfactory Unit at @Université de Genève (UNIGE) and a world expert on smell functionality.

    Coronavirus has infected nearly a quarter of a million people worldwide and has killed nearly 5 million people around the world.

    However, those who have survived have been plagued with ongoing symptoms (sometimes referred to as long haul Covid). One of the most striking clinical features of Covid infection is loss of smell, which affects nearly 60% of patients during infection and which may persist after recovery from covid.

    Olfactory dysfunction is a common side effect of many post-viral illnesses but there is a huge body of evidence that indicate that taste and smell loss are common symptoms of COVID-19 that may persist long after the initial infection. This effect has a profound impact on quality of life.

    Learn more about this phenomenon and the next steps you can take if you or someone you know is suffering from COVID-19 smell loss in this episode.

  • How smell training is helping COVID-19 patients recover their olfactory sense


    Loss of smell is a common symptom of COVID-19. Though a majority of patients recover their olfactory sense within weeks, some researchers estimate that 10% suffer long-term smell dysfunction. Los Angeles Times reporter Brittny Mejia looked into why this occurs and what people can do to regain their sense of smell.

  • Few people experience persistent smell loss | COVID-19 Special


    A study of 2,500 patients, who lost their sense of smell and or taste, showed 40% of them had completely regained it -- half a year later. 2% reported no improvement whatsoever. Scientists believe COVID attacks the cells that help communicate what we're smelling. We can lose our appetite or worse still, the will to live.

  • Smell therapy: Helping recovered COVID-19 patients regain their sense of smell


    One of the most common symptoms of COVID-19 is a distorted sense of smell and taste. For some patients, the problem persists long after they recover, bringing increased urgency to research aimed at understanding and treating the disorder. Scientists are still trying to pinpoint exactly why it happens in the first place.

  • Altered Sense of Smell and Taste in COVID 19


    About 45% of patients complain of anosmia/dysosmia or altered sense of smell and taste. Duration of these symptoms may last for more than four weeks in about 10% of patients. This topic was presented and discussed with my colleagues at the Iraqi Kurdistan Society otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery and sponsored by Pharma International company.

  • Why Are People Losing Smell After Recovering From COVID-19?


    70% of people report decreased or loss of smell and/or taste after being infected with COVID-19 and about 10% of them have persistent loss of smell for months after recovering from infection. We are going to talk about what may be causing these changes in smell and taste (neuroinvasion? epithelial damage?), how long they may last, and what may be used to treat the symptoms.

    We are going to use a case study to assist in this discussion on a 65 year old woman with persistent loss of smell and taste for 3 months after she recovered from COVID-19. She had a negative PCR swab, but was positive for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. They did an extensive workup and found that her symptoms seemed to stem from epithelial damage around the olfactory nerves (nerves that sense smell). This is important as one of the theories of this loss of smell was neuroinvasion, or direct viral invasion of the nerves that can travel to the brain. This doesn't seem to be the case, rather it seems that the epithelial cells around these nerves are being destroyed from invasion of the virus and then that is causing the nerves to be damaged. We will discuss how this works and what this means. We will then go into what treatments have been tried, have been effective, and still need to be studied further. Check out the video for all of these details and more!

  • Coronavirus Pandemic Update 44: Loss of Smell & Conjunctivitis in COVID-19, Is Fever Helpful?


    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 44 with Roger Seheult, MD of

    There is new evidence that loss of smell (anosmia) may be an indicator of COVD-19 infection. New reports also suggest that COVID-19 may cause conjunctivitis (pink eye), and be potentially spread through contact with the conjunctiva. Dr. Seheult discusses evidence about how untreated fever may be beneficial for fighting viral illnesses such as coronavirus.

  • Ways to regain senses of smell and taste after COVID-19


    ST. LOUIS - Some people who had COVID-19 are looking for ways to regain their senses of smell and taste.

    Doctors are working with patients on a variety of treatments from therapy to medication.

    Jim Dean from St. Louis County tested positive for COVID-19 in November

    I was considered severe, Dean said. It lasted for about 30 days total.

    Months later, Dean says peanut butter and pasta sauce taste foul. He describes certain foods as metallic and others as sewage-like.

    Dean told 5 On Your Side he thought he was going crazy.

    It's a feeling Dr. Jay Piccirillo a Professor of Otolaryngology at Washington University School of Medicine says is typical.

    It's very disorienting for the patients and we've had people say 'you know doc, when I had no sense of smell that was better than what I have now, the parosmia can be very disturbing, Dr. Piccirillo said.

  • Coronavirus: why might we lose our sense of smell and taste?


    In this video, we speak to Peter Brennan, Reader in Physiology from the University of Bristol who tells us about two possible reasons why losing our sense of smell and taste might be a symptom of COVID-19.

    To contact The Physiological Society:

    Recently, there have been reports of patients with COVID-19 losing their sense of taste and smell. So, what could be causing this?
    Well, we don’t know exactly, but one of our Members, Peter Brennan, Reader in Physiology from the University of Bristol, tells us that there are two possible explanations:

    Let’s say you have something nice cooking in the oven. As it’s baking, it releases particles that waft into your nasal cavity and attach to olfactory sensory neurons - the cells that detect what we smell and then signal this information to the brain.

    COVID-19 could be killing off these olfactory sensory neurons, keeping the signal of what you’ve just smelled from getting to your brain.

    Another possibility is that inflammation, part of the body’s response to fight off COVID-19, causes swelling in the nose that blocks off the airflow and prevent odour molecules from getting to the olfactory sensory neurons.

    When we talk about how this relates to lack of taste, what we are really referring to is lack of flavour. Our taste buds are still sensing sweetness or saltiness but we process the complex flavours of food by combining these tastes with what we smell. This is why when we have a blocked nose and can’t smell our food, it often tastes bland!

  • COVID-19: Loss of Taste! ????


    A significant portion of people who test positive for COVID-19 experience a sudden loss of smell or taste. People usually notice the loss of smell, but because smell is necessary to taste flavour, the symptoms are often connected.

    The reason this happens is not fully understood yet; scientists believe that the virus causes an inflammatory reaction inside the nose, leading to a loss of the olfactory – or smell – neurons. The loss of taste is trickier; we have little idea about how the coronavirus affects taste.

    Many people still haven’t gotten their senses back! If you needed another reason to keep being careful, here it is. Let’s keep doing our part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. Stay home, continue to enjoy your senses. ????????????

    Your loss of smell when contracting COVID-19 is a good sign. It demonstrates you have a strong immune system and is caused by an intense battle that occurred in your nose. This win prevented the COVID-19 virus from penetrating your body’s outer defense as the virus pushed hard to hit its target, your lungs and brain. Task Force RECON located inside your nose, executed a successful SCREEN at the cost of a few casualties and key sensors' loss. Replacement sensors are due to arrive in 6-8 weeks.
