Coronavirus symptoms update: Unbearable smells reported in long covid patients – why?

Sarah Govier, 44, from Whitstable, Kent was diagnosed with COVID-19 back in May with her main symptom being a loss of smell.

The mother-of-two described how nearly all food began to smell rotten and had lost half a stone due to being barely able to eat her favourite meals.
