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

    1:12

    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:
    pressoffice@physoc.org

    Transcript:
    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!

  • Why Do Coronavirus Patients Lose Their Sense of Taste and Smell?

    2:35

    Dr. Robert Kern, chair of the Otolaryngology department at Northwestern University, explains why coronavirus infections may result in the loss of taste and smell, a phenomenon known as anosmia. #Coronavirus #Covid19 #CoronavirusSymptoms #CoronavirusTips

    The coronavirus is capable of attacking key cells in the nose, which may explain the unusual finding that some Covid-19 sufferers lose their ability to smell and taste, Harvard Medical School researchers found.

    Their study of human and mice genomic data found certain cells at the back of the nose harbor the distinctly shaped proteins that the coronavirus targets to invade the body. Infection of these cells could directly or indirectly lead to an altered sense of smell, they said in a paper published Saturday.

    Doctors around the world are reporting anecdotal Covid-19 cases in which patients have experienced an abrupt and unexplained total or partial loss of smell and taste. The conditions, known medically as anosmia and dysgeusia, respectively, are “significant symptoms” associated with the pandemic, the American Academy of Otolaryngology, or head and neck surgery, said on March 22.

    The group, based in Alexandria, Virginia, proposes that these symptoms be added to the list of screening tools for possible Covid-19 infection. People experiencing the symptoms in the absence of other known causes should consider self-isolation and get tested, the group said.

    Inflammation in the nasal cavity triggered by the pandemic-causing infection may hinder the sense of smell, David Brann and Sandeep Robert Datta of the Harvard Medical School’s neurobiology department said. But it’s also possible the virus infects and damages cells in the nasal epithelium required for normal olfactory function.

    Uncovering the cause of the sensory loss has important implications to support diagnosis and determine the effects of the disease, the researchers said.

    “Furthermore, patients with persistent olfactory dysfunction are at risk of nutritional deficits, of injury due to the inability to smell ‘danger’ odors like smoke, gas and spoiled foods, and of developing psychiatric disorders, particularly depression,” they said.

  • Coronavirus: loss of taste or smell added to official symptoms - BBC News

    7:55

    Loss of taste and smell has been added to the list of official symptoms of coronavirus infection. Previously the list only included a high temperature and a new, continuous cough. The new guidance was set out by the Chief Medical Officers of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

    Some doctors have criticised the government for acting too slowly. They say that loss of taste and smell were known to be symptoms weeks ago and leaving them off the official guidance meant that hundreds of thousands of cases may have been missed, with infection spread as a result.

    The government has also announced that anyone in the UK aged 5 and over with symptoms of the coronavirus can now have a test. Ministers made the pledge despite frequently failing to reach their current target of 100,000 tests a day. Some key workers are still facing long waits to get their results.

  • Why does COVID-19 steal your sense of taste and smell?

    The virus has a more intense impact on your senses than others

  • Loss of smell or taste added to NHS coronavirus symptoms list | ITV News

    2:45

    A loss or changed sense of taste or smell are to be added to the NHS coronavirus symptoms list, weeks after experts first raised concerns that Covid-19 cases are being missed.

    Anyone suffering loss of taste or smell, or a noticeable change, should now self-isolate for seven days to reduce the risk of spreading the infection, England’s deputy chief medical officer, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam said.

    If the symptomatic person lives with others, they should stay at home for seven days, while all other household members should stay home for 14 days even if they do not have symptoms.

    The move means a change or loss of smell or taste will now be listed alongside a fever and a cough as the main symptoms of Covid-19.

    Prof Van-Tam told reporters it would mean 93% of cases where people have symptoms are now picked up, a rise from 91% previously.

  • Can’t smell suddenly? You could have coronavirus

    2:28

    A sudden loss of smell and taste could be a sign of mild coronavirus disease. Covid-19 symptoms include fever, dry cough, tiredness, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Those with a sudden loss of smell must home-quarantine and get tested for coronavirus disease. Very few conditions lead to sudden amnosia, or the loss of smell and taste. It should be treated as a sign of coronavirus disease, especially by people who risk exposure at the frontlines, such as health workers. People with a sudden loss of smell are 10 times more likely to have Covid-19 than any other infection, according to a study by the University of California in San Diego. The effect was temporary and patients recovered taste and smell within a few weeks of infection.

  • What are the early symptoms of Omicron variant of COVID-19? Heres what one doctor has seen

    4:19

    Dr. David Winter at Baylor, Scott & White in Dallas said some early symptoms of Omicron variant are different than other variants of COVID-19.

    The ultra-contagious omicron mutant is pushing cases to all-time highs and causing chaos as an exhausted world struggles, again, to stem the spread. But this time, we're not starting from scratch.

    Vaccines offer strong protection from serious illness, even if they don't always prevent a mild infection. Omicron doesn't appear to be as deadly as some earlier variants. And those who survive it will have some refreshed protection against other forms of the virus that still are circulating — and maybe the next mutant to emerge, too.

    1,418 people a day will go on to experience symptoms for longer than 12 weeks

    Omicron symptoms

    Initial analysis of symptom data from positive cases in London

    To compare Delta and Omicron symptoms

    London data was selected from a week in October

    With the most recent week ending 10th December

    This initial analysis found no clear differences in the early symptoms (3 days after test) between Delta and Omicron.

    The top five symptoms reported in the ZOE app

    runny nose

    headache

    fatigue (either mild or severe)

    sneezing

    sore throat

    SA Patients presentations

    Blocked or runny nose

    Headache

    Tiredness

    Scratchy or sore throat

    Body aches


    NHS official symptoms



    The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

    a high temperature

    a new, continuous cough

    a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

    Professor Tim Spector

    Omicron is set to be the dominant strain in the UK by Christmas,

    and in the New Year cases could hit a peak higher than anything we’ve ever seen before.

    Hopefully people now recognise the cold-like symptoms which appear to be the predominant feature of Omicron.

    Ahead of Christmas, if people want to get together and keep vulnerable family members safe,

    I’d recommend limiting social contact in the run up to Christmas,

    and doing a few Lateral Flow Tests just before the big family gathering.

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

    11:57

    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.

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

    12:47

    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!
