Entering US bases in South Korea to be tested for sense of smell

The U.S. Military Contingent Command (USFK) in South Korea required an olfactory test upon arrival at military bases to identify possible Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 infections. This was announced by Kmib.co. on Monday, April 6.

For the diagnosis used vinegar, smell or taste which, according to some researchers, can not be identified by infected. Those who can not accurately determine the smell of vinegar will send for coronavirus tests.

Testing will occur when entering Camp Walker, Camp Carroll and Camp Henry military bases.

According to the publication, a total of 19 cases of infection with coronavirus have been registered among U.S. troops on the Korean peninsula.

On April 5, a study was published proving that one of the symptoms of coronavirus infection is loss of smell.
