I am Amish Mustafa Khan, a researcher at Washington University in St. Louis (WashU) in the lab of Jay F. Piccirillo, M.D.
I have conducted extensive research on COVID-19 olfactory dysfunction and recently published a paper estimating that 0.7 million and as many as 1.6 million Americans may have chronic olfactory dysfunction as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The research paper was cited by over 55 news outlets and was disseminated amongst 1.7 million users on Twitter within the first 48 hours of publication. Given the immense interest on the topic, I have decided to do an AMA to answer your questions on this overlooked public health concern.
