The list for coronavirus symptoms is very long, but now one researcher is saying there is something else to add to the list that may be a very helpful warning sign of infection.
According to Tim Spector, a professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London, public health officials should add to the list of possible symptoms “COVID-19 tongue”. The British researcher is assisting in the tracking of COVID-19 infection warning signs, and according to Spector, he’s “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!”
Spector continued and said that he believes that more than a third (35%) of COVID-19 patients have symptoms that aren’t considered to be classic of the infection within the first three days of infection. These symptoms are also commonly overlooked, or as Spector says, “go ignored”. COVID-19 tongue has been detected before, check out this study here for more information. The list of the symptoms commonly found in the first three days of infection can be found below.
