Sarah Govier, 44, from Whitstable, Kent was diagnosed with COVID-19 back in May with her main symptom being a loss of smell.
The mother-of-two described how nearly all food began to smell rotten and had lost half a stone due to being barely able to eat her favourite meals.
Loss of smell, known medically as parosmia, is a common symptom being reported in COVID-19.
A study conducted by researchers at UCL and UCLH identified the most reliable indicator of COVID-19.
The key finding is that acute loss of smell and/or taste appears to be the most common indicator of the viral disease.
