Late last month I could not smell my favorite perfume and all food were tasteless, I fried egg and ate with Indomie no single taste that I had to dash it out to a small boy in my house,suddenly one Friday night I struggled to breath till next morning. I had to use paracetamol because the chest pain was so tight, I called Covid 19 hotline it was switched off, I just stayed at home and avoided every one for some days but am fine now.
Please I don’t know if children are not susceptible to the virus because before I realized what I did was a risk, the small boy had already finished the food and up till now he’s still jumping about even telling me to cook another noodles for him.

It happened to me 3 weeks ago, initially I assumed it was malaria and typhoid. I bought some drugs but it became worst that at a time I couldn't breath well. I had to rush to a pharmacy closed to my area, after explaining to the nurse she said it was covid 19 but I rejected it immediately, she gave me some drugs which included chroloquine, piriton, Vit C 500g and Zinc. 2 days after taking the drugs I became strong again and my sense of smell and taste equally came back.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your experiences here. Loss of smell or taste does not mean one has COVID-19. Not all those who suffer from COVID-19 will exhibit loss of taste/smell and not all who experience these loss of taste/smell are infected with COVID19. However, the best way now to ascertain this is by standardised PCR test. The importance of this survey is to bring out other factors that are associated to these recent loss of taste/smell.

Many thanks to those who have filled the survey and we will appreciate you sharing the survey links among your friends and colleagues.

I kinda experienced this too. Loss of smell and taste. Actually, it lasted about 2 weeks thereabout.
I assumed it was malaria and typhoid, so I visited a nurse who gave me some drugs. Anti malaria as well as amoxil for typhoid. I wasnt getting better, so I took some local herbs. Then I got better. But the loss of taste and smell persisted for some time. But I'm okay now. Thanks to Almighty God.

One more thing I experienced that seemed a bit worrisome to me, was inability to breathe in air properly. I was always feeling some sort of pain in n my nostrils while taking in air.
I had to always cover my nose.
