‘Long COVID sucks’

Reacting to a tabloid story about him celebrating his new job, Piers commented as he retweeted an article on Twitter.

He reflected on the headline which claimed he’d spent a “boozy night” in a pub: “Boozy? I only had one pint… and couldn’t taste it. #longcovidsucks.”

Why bother with beer?

Many fellow COVID sufferers tweeted about how they could empathise with Piers’ situation.

But others wondered why he would persist with drinking beer if he can’t taste it.

Piers replied to one such enquiry: “Feeling the sensation/texture of it is better than nothing. Just.”

His reply brought about a series of different reactions from fans.

One person agreed: “I know the feeling. It’s a strange sensation in a good way. Not being able to taste it but can sense the texture.”

Someone else related: “Husband just said the same. He’s unable to taste or smell since COVID. He’s just tried lager, bitter and cider. Still nothing.”

And another person joked: “Who drinks beer for the taste? Just saying.”
