There’s work going on in Philadelphia to understand the connection between covid- 19 and its effect on peoples’ sense of smell.

A covid-19 testing site has started passing out cards looking for information to conduct research on it.

The influence of the virus on the sense of smell varies by person and by variant.

Healthcare experts say one thing that’s recommended to help get back an impaired sense of smell is smell training.

For that – they recommend you get away from hustle and bustle for just a couple of minutes each day, and use essential oils or whatever you choose and try to remember what each smells like.
