Coronavirus

The British Association of Otorhinolaryngology has concluded that those that are asymptomatic but have tested positive, could show a loss of smell or taste after contracting the virus.

Coronavirus Patients With No Traditional Symptoms May Have These

In a statement, written by The British Associated of Otorhinolaryngology it was clearly outlined that “evidence from other countries that the entry point for the coronavirus is often in the eyes, nose and throat areas.”

“We have also identified a new symptom (loss of sense of smell and taste) that may mean that people without other symptoms but with just the loss of this sense may have to self-isolate – again to reduce the spread of the virus,” the statement added.

This is especially the case in young people. Professor Nirmal Kumar has stated that teens “may have just the loss of sense of smell and taste, which suggests that these viruses are lodging in the nose.”

However, UK Government requirements still stand that a high temperature or a continuous cough is of most concern.

According to this new study, if you are experiencing loss of smell or taste, it may be useful to strictly self-isolate until you can acquire a test.

Another option that is currently being negotiated is the possibility of tests being delivered to the houses of those that need them.

Across the UK, healthcare workers and those that provide care to old age homes are frustrated at the lack of tests available.
