Almost everyone in my family and church have lost their sense of smell and taste and recovered recently....which is a symptom of corona virus.

Are we all infected and recovering on our own?
after all there is a 98% recovery rate.

If you feel/believe you, your family, and other people you know are infected with Covid19, whether you're recovering on your own or not, please isolate for the required number of days.

There are cases where people recover but still able to infect others because of the long incubation period of the virus.

Btw, I believe there are other things other than Covid that can cause collective loss of smell but if you cant test, then isolate as much as possible.

That shits happened to me for four days i couldn't smell nor taste anything i had to isolate during those period but my sense of taste and smell are back stronger than before.

And that was the first in my life that i lost both senses.

Unlike malaria where i lost sense of taste or catarhh sense of smell.

I have lost my taste and smell senses too and it's been like this for like a month now. in fact yesterday I was even taking a drink and was wondering why it tasted so different until I now remembered what I was going through then I calmed down.

if it's covid, then maybe I won't be too surprised cos the Italian index case in Nigeria passed through my company when he landed at Lagos airport.

health wise, so far, I have had malaria which is another symptom but I have recovered from it and am doing fine right now

the only precaution I have been observing so far is not going to visit my elderly relatives as I don't want to be the source of their infection.

presently I take a lot of this our local herb called dongoyaro which is very effective for curing malaria

I think its cos the average nigerian has gone tru a lot.

Thats why the virus doesnt seem to affect us that much.

An average Nigerian(African ) has treated Malaria more than ten times.

An average European hasn't even for once.

Chloroquine treats Malaria right ?

I swearugod. Everyone I know are currently treating malaria fever or something similar to corona lately. It almost same symptoms like weak and joint pain. Zero sense of taste/smell and mid temperature coupled with headache.

Even me sef I've been down for 3days now. I can't smell shit. Could this be happening due to changes in weather or our China is here fully??

Now we dey drag herbal drink like food... I no won die oo

My sense of smell was down for some days. I had mild catarrh sha after one heavy rain like that...

As for my sense of taste, that one is still intact. I regretted it the day I put a little too much salt in my food, I no fit chop am grin


But on a serious note, I think many of us have caught the virus and recovered. I had mild chills recently and it went away before I could complete the dose of malaria tablets.

We already have herd immunity in Africa.

I think the reason antimalaria drugs help people with covid symptoms is because many of them contain artemisinin derivatives gotten from Artemisia Annua which is the main content of the Madagascar cure.

The truth is that many people in Nigeria have already knowingly and unknowingly contracted and treated Coronavirus. Some people have also died. sad

undecided

The NCDC figures do not capture all of that.

Nigerians have moved on and left Corona behind.

We move!

Before The discovery of LOSS OF TASTE AND SMELL as a symptom of the Covid-19, I was Ill during Early March and I had that as symptom too. I also had Soreness of throat,a joint pains and a bit of fever but no cough which disappeared after some weeks without medications. So when I saw that WHO discovered loss of smell and taste as a symptom of the Coronavirus I was like ooh maybe I had it but my body fought it off.
