Sudden Loss Of Smell Might be a Symptom Of Covid-19: Experts

Sudden Loss Of Smell Might be a Symptom ...

Talking about the symptoms of the deadly virus the scientists are citing that sudden loss of smell might be a hidden carrier of Covid-19. If if they possess other symptoms this symptom could be a hidden symptom.

 
The throat experts in the UK said that many patients who were tested positive for the virus in South Korea, China and Italy have reportedly developed symptoms of loss of smell, which is known as anosmia or hyposmia.

"In South Korea, where testing has been more widespread, 30 percent of patients testing positive have had anosmia as their major presenting symptom in otherwise mild cases," the president of the British Rhinological Society Professor, Clare Hopkins said.

The professors said that many patients around the world who have tested positive for COVID-19 are presenting only the symptoms of loss of smell and taste – without the more commonly recognized symptoms of high fever and coughing.

"There have been a rapidly growing number of reports of a significant increase in the number of patients presenting with anosmia in the absence of other symptoms," the statement issued by the professor said.

"Iran has reported a sudden increase in cases of isolated anosmia, and many colleagues from the US, France, and Northern Italy have the same experience."

"In young patients, they do not have any significant symptoms such as the cough and fever, but they may have just the loss of sense of smell and taste, which suggests that these viruses are lodging in the nose," he said.
