According to Dr Katherine Poehling of Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist in North Carolina, more and more people are not experiencing a loss of taste and smell as symptoms of COVID-19.
This is part of a trend where we are seeing Omicron stand out from previous variants in having a much different array of symptoms.
Some research from the COVID ZOE App, developed by King’s College London shows that the symptoms of Omicron are very similar to that of the common cold.
This is why at home testing will be crucial this winter; to stop people spreading Omicron when they think all they have is a cold.
