Smithsonian Magazine: Up to 1.6 Million People in the U.S. Have Long-Term Smell Loss Due to Covid-19

Smithsonian Magazine: Up to 1.6 Million People in the U.S. Have Long-Term Smell Loss Due to Covid-19. “A loss of smell—called anosmia—can be one of the first symptoms of a Covid-19 infection; one study reports that between 30 and 80 percent of diagnosed folks experience some variation of anosmia. Taking a big whiff of perfume, food or wine and not smelling anything at all can be an odd, confusing sensation, but around 90 percent of people recover their sense of smell as soon as two weeks, reports Ed Cara for Gizmodo. However, some people are taking much longer to recover their smell. For others, it may never come back.”
