No, but there is a new study out of Iran that seems to confirm it, so they brought that info up again.
It was news to me and i actually think that i already had that a few weeks ago. My throat discomfort felt like it wanted to clear my throat all the time but whatever was there, was to dry and sticky to come up. The teas and food that i had that time tasted awful. Like they where missing some part of their taste. The troat thing went away after a week, taste and smell came fully back after some weeks. I didn't make much of it and i'm basically locked in out of paranoia since mid February anyways. My nose also felt like it was numbed, a bit like it had a very light local anesthetic.
I see. I had no sinus issues.
