Is Loss of Smell or Taste a Symptom of Coronavirus?

  • Is Loss of Smell or Taste a Symptom of Coronavirus?


    Dr. Hao “Mimi” Tran recently received a call from one of her dear friends who asked, “Is loss of smell or taste a symptom of coronavirus? Will I get my sense of smell and taste back?” She had recently contracted coronavirus, COVID-19, and was still in quarantine.

    She found out she had the virus 8 days after testing.

    Interestingly, in some cases, sudden loss of smell or taste may be the only symptom of COVID-19. This has been seen worldwide according to doctors in France, Northern Italy, the UK, Germany and South Korea.

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


    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.

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


    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.

  • 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!

  • Lost Your Sense of Smell? Heres How to Get it Back!


    Dr. Christy explains olfactory training and how to get your sense of smell back if it's been lost from COVID-19 infection.


  • Woman loses taste, smell senses when contracting Covid-19


    Imagine what it would be like if your sense of smell and taste disappeared overnight - that's exactly what happened to 23-year-old Sarah Miller shortly before she was diagnosed with Covid-19.

    Some overseas doctors want the sudden loss of smell and taste to be considered an official symptom of Covid-19 - particularly in people who are not showing any other outward signs of the disease.

    Sarah is locked down in Taranaki. She tells Lisa Owen how she knew things were not right.

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


    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.

  • 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.

  • 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. ????????????

  • Can’t smell suddenly? You could have coronavirus


    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.

  • Omicron symptoms totally different from Delta COVID-19 variant: South African doctor


    As more research is done into the newly discovered Omicron COVID-19 variant, some evidence is emerging to suggest that it might not present the same way as other strains of the disease.

    Patients infected with the Omicron COVID-19 variant look very different than those infected with previous variants like Delta, says the chair of South Africa’s medical association.

    “It’s totally different from the Delta,” Dr. Angelique Coetzee told Global News Morning on Tuesday.

    She said that these patients aren’t displaying the same loss of taste and smell, need for supplemental oxygen or elevated pulse rate that doctors noted with Delta patients.

    “It’s very much like a cold or flu type of symptoms,” she said, adding that patients are reporting headaches and body aches, and a slight sore throat.

  • VERIFY: A sudden loss of smell or taste might be A COVID-19 indicator


    Several articles over the past few days have recently reported that a loss of smell or taste might signal that a person has been infected with the new coronavirus.

  • 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!

    Losing your sense of smell or taste could mean you have coronavirus, even if you have no other symptoms

  • UCSD Researchers: Smell, Taste Loss Shown As COVID-19 Symptom In Mild Cases


    Many of us are already experiencing some anxiety from being stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic. But now psychiatrists at UC San Diego say some COVID-19 patients may experience psychological disorders from the virus itself. KPBS Science and Technology reporter Shalina Chatlani has the details.

  • Study: Loss of smell, taste may be early symptoms of COVID-19


    CINCINNATI (WKRC) - There is a new warning from health care providers about the symptoms of COVID-19.

    Most people experience respiratory issues. For the past several weeks, health care providers have asked all of us to be on the lookout for three main symptoms for the coronavirus. They included fever, a dry cough and shortness of breath. A worsening of this can result in the complication of pneumonia.

    Now, we are learning there may be a few that also show up, sometimes before these others.

    Dr. Amit Govil specializes in patients who have compromised immunity, especially those who have had an organ transplant. He says GI symptoms, such as diarrhea and a loss of smell and taste are now added to the list. He says in one study, more than 50% of the patients complained of loss of taste and smell before they had any respiratory symptoms. The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery told its members that this loss of sense of smell is often an early indicator of the disease. If you notice it, you may want to be on the lookout for the other symptoms.
    Dr. Govil says there is no indication right now that your smell and taste don't come back once you get better.

    Call your own doctor if any symptoms seem to get worse instead of better -- especially after seven days.
