Covid symptom: losing taste in clothes
Updated: Sep 21, 2021
Scientists have confirmed that the first symptom of Covid-19 is losing your taste in clothes.
Dr Theo Platt of the Infectious diseases Institute said men should beware of sudden impulses to wear Hawaiian shirts or corduroy trousers. Women should get themselves tested if they find themselves in denim jackets or tracksuit pants tucked into Ugg boots.
‘I came home to find my husband, usually an impeccably dressed corporate highflyer, wearing socks with sandals. It was devastating,’ said Sophie Thickett, mother of two.
Dr Platt warned that the delta variant, originating in India, had a particularly devastating effect: sufferers could begin dressing like 50 year-old Indian taxi drivers.
