With Covid-19, we finally put the nose on the loss of the sense of smell


The olfactory deficit, one of the effects of Covid-19, generates real difficulties in social life, which can result in a tendency to isolation or depressive symptoms. In this post published with Libération, three specialists (Moustafa Bensafi, Catherine Rouby, Camille Ferdenzi, NEUROPOP CRNL) give their analysis and call for better medical care.
