Ear, Nose and Throat specialists across the nation are seeing an uptick in patients showing up with decreased or completely lost sense of smell in conjunction with the arrival of the conoravirus. It may be a clue in identifying individuals who are impacted by this virus.
Ahmad Sedaghat, MD, PhD, associate professor in the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist at UC Health, is performing research in this area of coronavirus-associated smell loss in close collaboration with other experts. He spoke with the Cincinnati Enquirer about this emerging area of interest associated with COVID-19.
"If you experience a decrease or complete loss of the sense of smell with no nasal obstruction – that's according to doctors coming out of Europe – the odds are incredibly high that you are infected with the novel coronavirus," Sedaghat told a reporter for the Enquirer.

The COVID-19 Watcher, developed by two University of Cincinnati students, displays data from every county and 188 metropolitan areas in the country. Features of the dashboard include ranking of the worst affected areas and auto-generating plots that depict temporal changes in testing capacity, cases and deaths. The COVID-19 Watcher can provide the public with real-time updates of outbreaks in their area. The app pulls in data from the New York Times, which has been tracking COVID-19 cases since January, and merges it with sources from the U.S. Census to map cases for each county and metropolitan area.
