Although researchers continue to study the lasting long-term effects of the novel coronavirus infection, the new report reiterates the so-called “long-distance transporters” whose sense of smell is distorted and caught the strange, unpleasant smell of fish, sulfur and burning Smell.
According to Sky News, Professor Nirmal Kumar, an otolaryngologist consultant and president of ENT UK, attributed the distortion of smell to delusion, calling it “very strange and very unique.” According to the National Institutes of Health, paranoia is a signal of a change in “smell perception,” “or when something that usually smells pleasant now smells bad.”
Recovered coronavirus patients recovered their sense of smell, but only affected the unpleasant smell
Despite reports of the stench of long-distance coronavirus transporters earlier this year, delusions are still not included in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) list of coronavirus-related symptoms, although the agency noted that the list “does not include all Possible symptoms.”
The agency’s webpage reads: “As we learn more about COVID-19, the CDC will continue to update this list.” An expert previously explained to Fox News the sense of smell in the context of viral pathogens.
Dr. Susan Shin, assistant professor of neurology at Mount Sinai, said: “Our nose has two sensory systems. We can detect pleasant aromas through the olfactory nerve, and the trigeminal nerve can detect dangerous toxic odors.” The hospital previously told Fox. news. “Compared with the olfactory nerve, the trigeminal nerve may be more resistant to the effects of viral pathogens because we need it to detect dangers in the environment, such as smelling smoke from a fire.”
Kumar said that thousands of patients across the UK are being treated for loss of smell and coinage amnesia, and now some patients are experiencing unpleasant odors associated with bad breath. The professor explained that the patient’s distorted smell stems from “olfactory hallucinations.”

Earlier this spring, Kumar and ENT UK reported that more and more patients are experiencing “sudden, unexplainable loss of smell.” Kumar said that the organization was one of the first reasons for the loss of smell in patients, which was caused by coronavirus infection.
The professor told reporters: “This virus has an affinity with the nerves of the head, especially the nerves that control the sense of smell.” “But it may also affect other nerves, and we think it will also affect neurotransmitters-transmitting information. To the brain’s mechanism.”
Kumar added in another report: “This means that the virus is affecting the nerves at the top of the nose-like a shock to your nervous system, and the nerves are not functioning.”
A 24-year-old patient in the United Kingdom, Daniel Saveski, has reported a “burning, sulfur-like smell” since he briefly lost his sense of smell for two weeks in March, while another patient in his 50s described this phenomenon. Means “disgusting” and refers to “pathological sweetness”.
Lynn Corbett of Selsey, England, told Sky News: “Most things smell disgusting. This sickly sweetness is hard to describe because I have never seen it before.”
Chrissi Kelly, a board member of AbScent, a British charity, advises affected people to avoid food that causes unpleasant odors, avoid eating at room temperature or cold to prevent the smell from increasing, and choose simple, bland foods such as rice and spaghetti.

In late October, another study from King’s College London, UK analyzed the symptoms of 4,182 coronavirus patients who used the COVID Symptom Research app to record their illness. They pointed out that 558 patients had symptoms lasting more than 28 days, while 189 patients had symptoms lasting more than 8 weeks, and 95 symptomatic patients had symptoms lasting more than 12 weeks.
Researchers found that in long-term COVID patients, the most common symptoms are fatigue, headache, dyspnea and insomnia, and they are more likely to occur in elderly patients, patients with higher BMI, and female patients. According to recent reports, abnormal smells or delusions may affect young patients and medical staff to a greater extent.
