Me. I tested positive last Friday and still have my sense of taste and smell. I haven't had a temperature either, my only symptom from the main 3 is a cough.

Not everyone does but it is a really common symptom. Mine didn't go until about day 4 or so. I have a slight ability to taste now but absolutely no smell (I am 3 weeks in now).

I've had my sense of taste and smell all through, although it has been altered at times. I'm currently day 7 in hospital. Had the temperature and cough, making baby steps in improvement.

I saw a chart last week that said about 40-60% of people had a change to their sense of taste or smell.
