Watch Girl Discover She Has COVID on TikTok Taste Challenge
We all know that one of the symptoms for COVID-19 is losing taste and smell. Because it’s such a strange symptom, it’s the one everyone is talking about. According to Buzzfeed, a 19-year-old girl named Maryn Short discovered she had COVID-19 by losing her taste. The crazy part about her discovery is that it happened while she was in the middle of a TikTok taste test challenge.
Her video starts with her in the drive-thru line at Starbucks explaining that she is about to do a taste-test. Oddly enough, she is wearing her face mask. She orders a Starbucks Iced coffee with five pumps of vanilla and three pumps of caramel. She removes her face mask and takes a sip. She has a confused look on her face and says it doesn’t have a taste as if something might be wrong with the drink. She sips again. Same thing. Then you can slowly see that she realizes she may have COVID. Her face is filled with worry and she immediately ends the video.
She kept everyone updated with more TikTok videos. She videos the day she got tested for COVID, receiving her results, taking her temperature, and her experience during quarantine.
I have to say, this girl is totally adorable.
