Denneny told Healio Primary Care - which provides daily internal medicine and primary care news - that typical causes for loss of smell are allergies, sinus infections or a common cold, and if loss of smell occurs without the presence of any of these conditions, "this symptom may be an additional identifier for COVID-19-infected patients who may require testing and/or self-isolation".
They should phone a doctor if they have symptoms.
Belgium has recorded at least 12,775 confirmed cases as of Tuesday morning, according to Johns Hopkins University.
This would suggest that some 50,000 people in Britain may have as yet unconfirmed COVID-19 infections, Spector said. Usually, those patients also soon develop more common symptoms like difficulty breathing, fever, or cough - only about 3% of cases studied had digestive symptoms alone, the researchers said. The scientists say theirs is a limited study and more research is needed to determine precisely how contagious a patient really is after the symptoms disappear. About one in 10 coronavirus patients experience some sort of gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhoea and nausea, Business Insider previously reported.
Some were infectious for up to eight days after their symptoms, including fevers and coughs, had alleviated.

He faced 51 charges of murder, 40 charges of attempted murder and one charge under the Terrorism Suppression Act. The hearing came as New Zealand entered a state of lockdown to prevent further spread of the coronavirus .
The team applied a machine learning algorithm to data from 53 coronavirus patients across two hospitals in Wenzhou, China, finding that changes in three features - levels of the liver enzyme alanine aminotransferase (ALT), reported body aches, and hemoglobin levels -- were most accurately predictive of subsequent, severe disease. "Most importantly, half (8/16) of the patients remained viral positive (a surrogate marker of shedding) even after the resolution of symptoms", the investigators wrote. These and other psychological factors could result in similar symptoms, according to psychotherapist Ilene Cohen writing for Psychology Today, so it's important not to panic if you feel exhausted or uneasy. It's not clear how prevalent these symptoms might be but about 11% of people studied reported chills, and 14% reported muscle aches, according to the World Health Organization report.
Sharma continued and said, "More severe infections may have even longer shedding times". However, the results indicate that quarantine periods might need to be lengthened in some recovered patients.
According to the study in the Lancet, about 8% of COVID-19 patients reported headaches. And it seems that a loss in some people's sense of smell (anosmia) or loss of sense of taste (ageusia) can be the only symptoms they have at all.
The small European Union country, with a population of 11.4 million, now has 12,775 cases of persons tested positive for COVID-19, of whom 4,920 have been hospitalised, including 1,021 in intensive care.
