This study was done in China in the very early part of the virus. I wonder if it's still true? I've heard so much about loss of taste and sense of smell. And just to show what the world is like and why so many have gotten sick and died in the US, I found the study but the interesting part were the comments on a particular website that it was on -- I believe the original study was published by graduate students at USC in something called Frontiers but it's everywhere if you google it and the comments, again, are mostly about how the virus is a hoax or just seasonal flu etc. I only looked to see if the CDC agreed, but they don't appear to have this old study on their website. Again, my curiosity was just whether it was still true. Probably is, but those comments were really depressing.
