A leading coronavirus expert has shared an image of a increasingly common symptom of Covid we should all be looking out for, APA reports citing Chronicle Live.

Professor Tom Spector, epidemiologist at King's College London and lead scientist on the Zoe Covid Symptom Study UK Infection Survey, said one in five patients are now presenting with uncommon symptoms.

Taking to Twitter, he said: "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!"

The most common symptoms of Covid-19 are a cough, a fever and a loss of sense of taste or smell.

But people have also reported other symptoms - including fatigue, confusion and an upset stomach.
