Our expert says:
The olfactory nerve receptor neurons are located in the olfactory mucosa of the upper parts of the nasal cavity. This is probably a temporary loss of smell due to the infection. Because we depend heavily on smell when tasting, it may feel like your tasting is also affected ( think back when you had a cold and your nose was totally blocked)
