One of the faculty of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London, Professor Tim Spector, took it to his Twitter handle to reveal that, “One in five people with Covid still present with less common symptoms that don’t get on the official PHE list – such as skin rashes. Seeing increasing numbers of Covid tongues and strange mouth ulcers. If you have a strange symptom or even just headache and fatigue stay at home!”
