Doctor and TV presenter Yevgeny Komarovsky called the unexpected danger of loss of smell with coronavirus. The video is available on YouTube.
According to him, there are two situations when the lack of smell can really threaten your life. “The first situation is related to the fact that through the sense of smell, we, in principle, determine the quality of products,” - said the specialist. He urged people infected with coronavirus infection to check products before eating and, if necessary, seek the help of others.
In addition, due to the lack of smell, the patient cannot smell smoke and gas. Komarovsky noted that during the heating season, it is necessary to closely monitor gas equipment, and also not to forget about smoke and gas detectors.
Earlier, Komarovsky was outraged by some popular councils on the fight against coronavirus. “Today I literally received two letters about the need to lubricate the nose with cotton swabs dipped in laundry soap. And it helps a lot. And the topic of breathing over alcohol, over moonshine is generally a must-have, without it at all, "- said the doctor. So he answered the question about the stupidest recommendations that he met.
