The coronavirus is still rearing its ugly head among the Black and Latino communities and experts are still scrambling to make sense of it all.
Now with the vaccines out, many are still questioning the severity of Covid-19.
We have lost so many, yet some have been diagnosed and still walk around with little to no symptoms.
One symptom, in particular, the loss of smell and taste, is noted to be one of the most lingering symptoms that patients experience.
However, in recent news, Covid-19 patient Dr. Jennifer Spicer had her loss of smell and taste come back, but unpleasantly different.
It’s still a mystery behind the Covid-19 effects
The assistant professor of infectious diseases at Emory University School of Medicine reported that six months after being infected and experiencing fever, chills, fatigue, and loss of smell and taste for about a week, she is now regaining her senses back – as repulsive as they may be.
“It’s really awful. It ranges from an unpleasant chemical taste to a rotten meat taste,” Spicer explained after a recent bite of cheese that tasted like chalk.
According to a study, experts found that 86% of patients with mild forms of Covid-19 developed loss of sense of taste and smell, compared with 4% to 7% of those with moderate to severe cases.
