That is, it is a symptom that is becoming more and more frequent among those who contracted the disease.

In patients over the age of 35, between 20% and 40% had loss of smell or taste, compared with about 15% to 25%, in the same group, who reported fever and between 13% and 18% of those who indicated cough.
