The reduced or distorted ability to smell during sniffing or eating is also known as olfactory dysfunction

The most common symptom of Covid-19 is losing a sense of smell or taste and a new study suggests that it takes around 21.6 days to recover from the symptoms in mild cases.

The reduced or distorted ability to smell during sniffing or eating is also known as olfactory dysfunction.

According to the study, published in the Journal of Internal Medicine, the patient-reported prevalence of olfactory dysfunction was 85.9 percent in mild cases of COVID-19.

And 4.5 percent in moderate cases and 6.9 percent in severe-to-critical cases.

“Olfactory dysfunction is more prevalent in mild Covid-19 forms than in moderate-to-critical forms, and 95 percent of patients recover their sense of smell at 6-months post-infection,” said lead author Jerome R. Lechien of Paris Saclay University.

To determine the results, the researchers involved 2,581 patients from 18 European hospitals.
