While the pandemic restrictions have eased off a lot in recent weeks, and we’re finally starting to get back to some normalcy, we still have some reminders of how serious COVID-19 is and was. Today, ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit gave us that reminder.
It has been five months since Herbstreit tested positive for COVID, and he’s beginning to get concerned that he still cannot taste or smell.
Been 5 months since I tested positive for Covid. Still can’t taste or smell. Anyone else experience this?? Did it ever come back?? Haven’t tasted a meal since late December. After 5 months…is this my new normal or will taste and smell come back???

Some fans responded to Herbstreit with their own experiences with COVID-19.
I had COVID in March 2020. I got my smell and taste back slowly after a couple months but it came back wrong and random things taste and smell rancid. It's taken over a year but I'm starting to see improvement and my senses are starting to get back to normal so hang in there!

This is some pretty scary stuff for Kirk Herbstreit.
A lot of people were suggesting that the college football guru should see a doctor, and figure out whatever lingering effects might still be going on from the virus.
Hopefully he starts to regain his senses soon.
