Symtomps of COVID-19 on skin?

Today, there were around 3.51M people around the world confirmed of getting infected by COVID-19. A third of those were recovered and nearly 250K deaths. After four months, more evidence has been collected. The previous common known symptoms are fever, tiredness and dry cough. Some others could be aches and pain, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, diarrhoea. A few uncommon could be a loss of smell and scene.

Recently, a group of dermatologists in Belgium and the US has detected a new symptom on skin from a young male case study. It calls attention from the community. More and more evidence is found across the countries.
