Bryan Cranston says he still hasn’t recovered sense of taste or smell after coronavirus infection

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has revealed that he has still not fully recovered his sense of taste or smell after contracting coronavirus.

The actor shared a video in July revealing he had caught Covid-19 “a little while ago”, saying he was “very lucky” as he only experienced mild symptoms.

At the time, he urged his fans to do what they could to stop the virus spreading.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cranston has now said that the only symptom that lingered is that “I have lost a percentage of my ability to taste and smell”.

“We were very lucky, though, in all seriousness,” he said. “We had a few days of achiness, but not enough to keep you in bed. I had a temperature of 99 for about three hours, and then just exhaustion for a week.”

He said of his sense of taste and smell: “I think about 75 percent has come back, but if someone was brewing coffee and I walk into a kitchen, I cannot smell it,” he said.

After recovering from the virus, Cranston donated some of his plasma with Covid-19 antibodies to the UCLA Blood and Platelat Center.

“Hopefully the plasma donation can help some other people,” he said.
