Coronavirus warning – scientist warns of ‘unusual’ new symptom of COVID-19 infection

“It is an unusual rash in people who don’t normally get rashes. That is the key thing. It can just last for a day and disappear, so people have got to be quite vigilant. Other people get it for a long time.”

COVID-19 can present itself in a variety of different types of rash, he added.

Patients have reported developing hives, as well as rashes similar to chicken pox.

The skin condition can develop anywhere on the skin, with coronavirus patients reporting changes to their hands, feet, torso, back, and even lips.

If you’re worried about the development of a new rash, you should consider remaining at home to avoid spreading the virus.
