Can you taste bitter with Covid?

Can you taste bitter with Covid?

We have five basic tastes sweet, sour, salty, bitter and 'savoury' (called umami) which are not normally affected when we lose our sense of smell because they are detected with the tongue. However, there is evidence that in COVID true taste can be affected as well as smell.

Can you lose taste without smelling?

It's unlikely to lose the sense of smell without also perceiving a loss or change in taste.
