While people are already aware of the most common symptoms of COVID-19, experts suggest a broader look into the spectrum of ailments caused by the deadly disease. The limited focus on just the classic symptoms poses great risk of spread and more danger to the health of the most vulnerable. That said, the local health officials in Warrington, Cheshire, United Kingdom, have listed down a set of seven new COVID symptoms.
– Sore throat
– Muscle aches and joint pain
– Skin rash
– Discolouration of fingers or toes
According to Thara Raj, Warrington’s director of public health, “There have been several cases where a person who has tested positive for coronavirus in Warrington has had very mild symptoms, or different symptoms to the three classic ones.”
“These people, who got a test as soon as they started to feel unwell, helped us to stop the spread of the virus around Warrington,” he added.
