The nCoV-2019 Coronavirus is one of the most dangerous global health crises in 2020, which is now flagged as a major public health concern in the United States.
When a disease or illness gain as much attention on social media as the coronavirus, then it is imperative to follow trustworthy updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local healthcare officials.
The most commonly reported symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough and shortness of breath.
However, as the disease has spread around the world, healthcare providers have noticed a few unusual symptoms, including loss of smell (anosmia) and decreased sense of taste (ageusia).
In South Korea, 30% of people who tested positive for the virus said that loss of smell was their first major symptom.
In Germany, more than 2 out of 3 confirmed cases included loss of smell and taste.
