As covid affects olfactory nerve and is responsible for sneezing efforts. Slowly regeneration will settle the issue nothing extra efforts should be done

The sneeze centre sends message to all the breathing muscles which includes primary breathing muscles like diaphrag like chest muscles,abdominal muscles and accessory muscles also the muscles of vocal chord and behind throat and finally muscles controlling eyelids so that they can work together to create a sneeze.So kindly do a thorough assessment of all the muscles required to create sneeze as well as ncv test for sinus nerve.Refer the patient to an experienced physio specialized in cardiothoracic for the strengthening the breathing muscles if required.
