The risk was 70% greater in post-menopausal women.

European researchers looked at patients who were having trouble sleeping and performing everyday activities after surgery. They found low-exertion aerobic exercise – like walking, cycling or swimming – in the morning was most beneficial for sleep.

And the loss of smell or taste in mildly symptomatic COVID-19 patients was either resolved or improved in four weeks for most people. The survey-based study said more follow-up is needed to determine if the remainder of patients will experience future improvement.
