Since April 2020, Dr Bataille has carried out research on COVID rashes in collaboration with researchers at King’s College and the biotech company Zoe (https://covid.joinzoe.com/data).
The data collected via the COVID symptom app in the UK has been invaluable for COVID research and rashes occur in 8% of COVID cases and of those, the rash was the only presentation. It is therefore important to recognise another important potential sign of COVID infection.
