Loss of Smell as Long COVID Symptom Traced to Inflammation | #coronavirus | #kids. | #children | #schools | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

New research suggests that the presence of ongoing inflammation that damages and destroys cells in the nose may be the reason that some people fail to recover their sense of smell after COVID-19.

The study, a collaboration between researchers at Duke, Harvard, and the University of California in San Diego, adds an important insight into a problem that has affected millions of people who have not fully recovered their sense of smell after COVID-19. The findings were published online December 21, 2022, in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

Millions Have Not Fully Recovered Their Sense of Smell After COVID-19

One symptom long associated with COVID-19 infection is loss of smell, says the senior author of the study, Bradley Goldstein, MD, PhD, associate professor in head and neck surgery and communication sciences and neurobiology at the Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina.

“Most people who have an altered sense of smell during the acute phase of viral infection will recover smell within the next one to two weeks, but some don’t,” says Dr. Goldstein.
