If you’ve recently noticed that your sense of smell and/or taste has diminished, you should get into isolation ASAP and seek out a COVID-19 test. Doctors around the world have noted that patients infected by the coronavirus report anosmia. Even if no other symptoms are present, you could potentially be a hidden carrier for the disease. While scientific confirmation hasn’t occurred, the anecdotal evidence is enough for health experts to sound the warning. Keep in mind, there is no self-test for coronavirus.
A sudden loss of smell or taste could mean you have the coronavirus, even if you have no other symptoms. https://t.co/HZyjS7kUXF
