Berlin (dpa) – Actor and singer Tom Beck (42) still feels the consequences around seven months after his corona infection.
“The sense of smell is really still gone in some things. I would say that 95 percent of things smell the same to me as before, four percent different and one percent I don’t smell at all,” Beck told the German press agency.
The musician, who lives in Berlin and released his fourth studio album “4B” in May, struggles especially with shower gels. “They all smell different somehow. Maybe it will come back at some point. But I find it really frightening and astonishing how the infection continues to this day.”
Born in Nuremberg (“Alarm für Cobra 11”), he was infected in April during the production of the music show “The Masked Singer”, which he later won as a sloth. The ProSieben show, in which celebrities sing under disguise, had to pause for two weeks.
