Hi everyone. For @pintofscienceau, I’ve been asked to introduce myself and what I do. Well, hi - I’m Daniel and I am a statistical geneticist who is interested in chemosensory perception (i.e. #taste & #smell) and #ThisIsMyScience. #OurBody (1/5)
Loss of smell is observed in patients with #COVID19, the recent pandemic that has spread to almost every country on Earth. However, existing reports have downplayed or failed to distinguish the potential effect on taste and other oral sensations. #ThisisMyScience (2/5)
We, @GCChemosensoryR, design a multi-lingual, international questionnaire to assess self-reported changes in the perception of smell, taste, and oral sensations and related symptoms in patients with a COVID-19 diagnosis. #ThisisMyScience (3/5)
From the first 4000 patients, we found a reduction of smell, taste, and other oral sensations during COVID-19. We also showed that nasal obstruction DID NOT account for smell loss, suggesting the SARS-CoV-2 infection may disrupt sensory-neural mechanisms. #ThisisMyScience (4/5)
Have you had a respiratory illness of any kind recently? You can help find out out how smell & taste are related to COVID-19 by completing this 10-minute survey I better get back to work, but ask me questions and I’ll try to reply. #ThisIsMyScience (5/5)
