Loss of smell and taste

Had fever for 36 hours 100.6, body ache, no cough ,after two days i could'nt smell (smell was there but very less) or taste (taste for sweet, sour,and salt was there but couldn't find taste in food flavour)
I always have the habit of sleeping under the fan at full speed no mater if it's cold or hot( presence of post nasal drip, coughing while only sleeping due to throat irritation, blocked nose while sleeping and early in the morning)
Right now really worried if it's covid or something else

Fever and loss of smell and taste are suspicious for COVID; consider getting tested.
