Hello! It's great to hear that work is being done in this area, and see other people suffering from loss of smell and taste.
My mom and cousin both lost their smell and taste back in late March. My mom says that she can taste sugar and salt now, and she can smell really strong scents (tuna, heavy perfume). Is there anything else she can do to help develop her senses back? She was taking zinc for a while but apparently too much can damage your nerves as well.
I'm also curious how the "smell nerves" can be damaged and how they recover - can you explain this science a little more?
