300K Swedes have impaired sense of smell due to COVID-19, Swiss media: There are only two clinics in the country that can treat.
[Global Times news] The COVID-19 pneumonia caused about 300,000 Swedes to impair the sense of smell. The Swedish News Agency reported on the 24th that Sweden has a population of about 10 million, but there are only two clinics in the country that can treat olfactory problems. One of them just opened in September near the capital Stockholm. Right now, there are long lines in front of the two clinics.
Singapore’s “Straits Times” reported on the 25th that Charlotte Holberg, a biomedical analyst at Lund University in Sweden, told the media: “Our patients come from all over Sweden, and consultation calls are available everywhere.” It is reported that the COVID-19 epidemic broke out.
Previously, the two clinics mainly treated loss of smell caused by other reasons, including infections, head injuries and neurological diseases, but now most people seeking help are patients with COVID-19 pneumonia, and even people who have recovered from the COVID-19 also suffer from smell. And impaired taste.
A Swedish woman named Eva Hoglund contracted the COVID-19 virus in April last year. To her, except for vanilla ice cream, most things taste and smell like rotten. She said: “I looked at the strawberry, but it smelled so bad that I almost vomited.”
According to data released by the Swedish Public Health Agency last week, since the spread of the epidemic, there have been more than 1.16 million confirmed cases of the COVID-19 in Sweden and nearly 15,000 deaths. Since Sweden lifted epidemic prevention restrictions on September 30, the number of new cases has increased slightly.
