One of the main symptoms of COVID-19 has been smell loss. A research by the University College London now shows that smell loss, caused by long COVID, is linked to changes in the brain. Furthermore, a study by the National Health Service in England has revealed that single-use surgical items nearly contribute two-thirds of the carbon footprint in common operations. Find out more about long COVID smell loss and therapy options, the reduction of carbon footprint of single-use surgical items and other interesting topics in today's newsletter. Enjoy reading!
