But now, experts are sounding the alarm on one "dangerous" long COVID symptom that many people might not even realize they're experiencing.

Interim result released June 21 from a long-term Dutch study just revealed that around 50 percent of all the patients enrolled in this large study still have one or more COVID symptoms three months after being first infected with the virus.

Kai Zhao, PhD, director of the Nasal Physiology and Therapeutic Center in the Department of Otolaryngology at Ohio State University College of Medicine, recently told Pharmacy Times that loss of smell or taste is a common long-lasting symptom of the virus.

Zhao was also the senior author of a May 2022 study published in the Med journal, which analyzes the prolongation of loss of smell and taste years after an initial COVID infection.ae0fcc31ae342fd3a1346ebb1f342fcb.

"Some of our patients who have COVID, even during the first wave, which is March 2020—they still have smell loss," he told the news outlet.

The main concern isn't necessarily how many are experiencing loss of smell or taste—or the fact that this symptom can last for years.

According to the health expert, about 50 percent of patients previously infected with COVID who did not report ongoing smell or taste loss were "objectively" found to have smell loss when tested.

"Many people who had COVID in the past, probably with the original variants of the virus, underwent some degree of smell loss, even if they didn't think they did," Susan Travers, PhD, a co-author of the study and a professor of biosciences in Ohio State's College of Dentistry, said in a statement, per Ohio State News.

Zhao said his "one major concern" for people experiencing undetected smell and taste loss is that they might not be able to sense potentially life-threatening situations, such as a gas leak, a fire, or the presence of dangerous chemicals.

"So people with good smell function can detect that and leave or ventilate, but some patients with smell loss cannot detect that environmental danger, and that could be a real risk for them.".
