  1. RUTH POINTER RUTH POINTER United Kingdom says:

    I have been trying to work out for myself what has happened to my sense of smell since having Covid in March 2020. I have always loved coriander, but the smell now seems overpowering, and less pleasant, and it seems similar to the smell of orange peel - which I also used to love. I also find the smell of cooking onions and leeks too strong, and not as pleasant as I used to. This article has led me to guess that my olfactory receptor OR6A2 has been sensitised by the virus, so that I respond differently to aldehydes. However I am not a scientist, so this is just self-diagnosis!
