Professor Nirmal Kumar, head of ENT UK, said young people experience a different set of symptoms to older COVID-19 patients.
He told Sky News they experience a loss of taste and smell, which may also indicate where the virus chooses to make its home.
Professor Kumar said: “In young patients, they do not have any significant symptoms such as the cough and fever, but they may have just the loss of sense of smell and taste, which suggests that these viruses are lodging in the nose.”
In a statement, ENT UK, a membership which represents ear, nose and throat surgery said evidence of these symptoms has come from some of the worst affected countries in the world.
