Loss of smell and taste is one of the most frequent symptoms found in patients with Sars-Cov-2. Therefore, some researchers have suggested doing a very special home test: the test for Covid 19 with the aroma of coffee.
Smell disorders are one of the most common characteristics of colds, flu, and parainfluenza dis-eases. Generally, they are linked to an alteration in transmission, a perceptual disturbance of a neural nature, or a conduction defect.
In colds, the nasal mucosa becomes inflamed but, when it decongests, smells return as usual. In the neural form, the situation becomes complicated, and the recovery time can take up to 4 weeks.
Many patients who tested positive for Covid-19 reported that they aren’t able to smell and taste, even without the presence of nasal obstruction. From some research carried out by the Humanitas Clinical Institute of Rozzano (MI), about 42% of the positives showed a reduction or loss of smell, and 55% also of taste.
The altered ability to smell, generally, occurs in the intermediate stage of the disease, especially in people suffering from a moderate form of Coronavirus.
According to a further study conducted at the University of Padua and Trieste, the AULSS2 of Treviso, the Aviano Oncology Reference Center, and King’s College London, half of the patients recover the correct sensitivity, while the others regain their sense of smell more slowly.
These symptoms were found especially in women.
The emerged data, therefore, suggest that olfactory perceptions are closely related to Coronavirus infection. In general, this symptom is accompanied by dryness of the nasal mucous membranes.
The coffee aroma test to find out if you are posi-tive
In a video released on Youtube, Professor James Showb suggests a very simple way to understand if you are suffering from Sars-Cov-19: smell some coffee! Let’s find out more about this experi-ment.
One of the most familiar smells is that of freshly roasted coffee. When the coffee beans pass through the coffee grinder, they spread a unique aroma into the air. This happens because in coffee there are a large number of odorous substances that are received directly by the olfactory cells, from which they are transmitted to the brain.
If your nose no longer perceives the aroma of coffee or it is difficult to recognize the scents that are familiar to you, you can take the coffee test to see if you are positive for Coronavirus.
How does the coffee test work?
Coffee has many beneficial effects on our body, including a lower chance of exposing us to colon cancer and a decrease in the risk of Alzheimer’s.
In a video released on Youtube by LOLNEWS, in addition to discussing these aspects, it is also explained that coffee can be used as a home test for Coronavirus.
From research on Covid-19, one of the most frequent symptoms found in virus-positive patients is a lack of smell and taste.
According to Professor James Shwob, who teaches at Tufts University School of Medicine, to understand if you have contracted the Coronavirus you need to evaluate whether you recognize familiar scents, such as that of coffee.
To do the Covid-19 test with coffee, just take a small amount of ground coffee and evaluate how far away you can smell it.
If your nose is not congested, but you cannot perceive the coffee aroma, you may have an infec-tion in progress. In this case, call your doctor and ask him for advice.
The coffee test is not reliable but, not perceiving the aromatic scents of the substance at all, is an indication of an olfactory alteration.
To assess whether you have Covid, you must follow the directions of the WHO.
In a Youtube video released by Lolnews, the beneficial effects of coffee were shown, such as reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s and lower exposure to the risk of developing colon cancer.
In addition to these, Professor James Shwob highlights the link between coffee and Coronavirus. The Professor suggests using freshly ground coffee powder to understand if you have Covid-19.
