According to the British Association of Otorhinolaryngology, they have been revealed new symptoms of coronavirus present in COVID-19 patients. According to the collected data, the sudden loss of smell can be a symptom of being a hidden carrier of the virus.

As both the president of the British Rhinology Society point out, Claire Hopkins as Nirmal Kumar, president of the Association of Otorhinolaryngology:

“There is already good evidence from South Korea, China and Italy that a significant number of patients with proven covid-19 infection have developed anosmia/hyposmia . In Germany more than 2 out of 3 confirmed cases are reported to have anosmia. In South Korea, where testing has become widespread, 30% of patients with positive results have had anosmia as their primary presenting symptom in mild cases. ”

Facts about new symptoms of coronavirus

Scientists say that there is a drastic increase in patients suffering from anosmia in addition to other symptoms. This has been announced by experts in Iran, the US, and Italy.

In the signed report declare what:

“These patients may be some of the hidden carriers so far that have facilitated the rapid spread of COVID-19. Unfortunately, these patients do not meet the current criteria for testing or self-isolation.”

Hopkins and Kumar think that if adults do not have another symptom but anosmia, they must be isolated for 7 days. This would reduce the number of people carrying the virus.

According concluded the specialists:

“It will also be a major trigger for healthcare personnel to wear full personal protective equipment and help offset the higher infection rates found among ENT surgeons compared to other healthcare workers.”
