Coronavirus (COVID-19) Loss of Smell and Fever

The Pandemic that emerged in 2019 is one of the current threats we face. SARS-CoV-2, The World Health Organization first became aware of this completely new virus on December 31, 2019, following a report of a cluster of cases of ‘viral pneumonia’ in Wuhan, People’s Republic of China.

Fever is one of the problems we’ll have to deal with. We will most likely catch a cold and cough as a result of changes in the temperature of our surroundings. And if you have a recurring fever and a cold cough, you may have SARS-CoV-2.

When there is nothing to smell, this absence of scent is also a distressing symptom.

When you have this experience, don’t be too worried since it will damage our physiological aspects; nonetheless, you will be terrified because even your meal will have no scent.

According to the majority’s testimony, the sense of smell would temporarily fade and then reappear. But what if you hadn’t scented anything in three days? Smell healing begins after three days, although it may take several weeks or months to recover.

Practice Your Smell

It is recommended to train your sense of smell when it is lost. Every morning, take or grab any four scents to practice, such as coffee, lemon, and so on. Also, before going to bed, practice your smell again and again until your senses recover.
