How long can loss of smell last after Covid-19?

How long can loss of smell last after Covid-19?

In most cases, the smell loss lasts only a few weeks, but for more than 12 percent of people with COVID-19, olfactory dysfunction persists in the form of ongoing reduction in the ability to smell (hyposmia) or changes in how a person perceives the same smell (parosmia).

When will your sense of taste and smell come back after Covid-19 on average?

When these support cells regenerate (on average four to six weeks later; for some it takes longer) your sense of smell will return. Smell and taste are intertwined in our brain, so when you lose your sense of smell, you also lose your sense of taste.
