Abstract : This shows that SARS CoV-2 affects sensory neurons because loss of taste and smell is one of the most obvious symptoms of COVID-19 infection. It is therefore thought that the same virus might harm other senses, like hearing. The evaluation of the auditory condition initially necessitates knowing the hearing thresholds (sound intensity) in the ranges of the audible speech frequencies, which is what pure tone audiometry treats. This is in contrast to taste and smell, which do not require measuring tools because they are extremely obvious indications (PTA).
