Paris I think it’s just a temporary symptom that could be an early indicator or you have the virus before you start showing flu symptoms or if you are asymptomatic. You recover your sense of taste and smell after recovering from the virus

If this holds up it could be a game changer. An early symptom would change everything.

First time I've been personally worried about getting it. Not being able to smell or taste is horrible from what I know from my grandma. I hope it's only a temporary thing for those who caught it.

Hey without the sense of taste, if food runs out, people can turn to eating their toilette paper without fear.
