Why did COVID-19 take my sense of smell?

How do we know?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published new data out of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. It looked at data from the spread of COVID-19 from Nov. 7, 2021, to Jan. 8, 2022. Read more about it here.

This time period was used because it is when the Omicron variant began to spread in the United States.

COVID-19 cases were 12.3 times higher for the unvaccinated compared to boosted Americans.

  • Hospitalizations were 83 times higher.
  • For the week ending on Jan. 8, unvaccinated people were 3.6 times more likely to be infected compared to those with booster shots, according to the CDC data.
  • Unvaccinated people were 23 times more likely to be hospitalized compared to those with boosters.

These findings align with other recent studies. This indicates that COVID-19 vaccination protects against severe COVID-19, including Omicron.
