From yahoo news this morning. Proving that the mystery illness has nothing to do with covid. Like I said earlier, they have no explanation for these symptoms, must be covid, its a dermatology thing etc.

We're still learning all the ways that the novel coronavirus affects our bodies.
Though we started out thinking of the disease as something that primarily attacks the lungs, other symptoms — like the loss of taste and smell, dizziness, and nausea — are coming to light.
Dermatologists are now learning that the virus may show itself through skin problems, the most well known of which is toes that look as if they're frostbitten, also known as "COVID toes."
The American Academy of Dermatology has received over 600 submissions of skin-related problems that healthcare providers are seeing in patients with COVID-19, including "COVID toes," rashes, hive-like symptoms, and blisters that resemble chickenpox.
Many of the new skin problems aren't exclusive to the coronavirus, meaning that even if you see them, you don't necessarily have the virus.

There is still a lot that we don't know about the novel coronavirus.
We originally thought of it as a virus that primarily attacked the lungs. After all, a cough and shortness of breath are some of the key signs of infection.
But the virus affects different people in different ways. Some may not have any symptoms at all, while others can be so sick that they need to be hospitalized. There's also mounting evidence to suggest that the elderly and children may have vastly different symptoms than the rest of the population.
COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, also reveals itself through skin problems, doctors are now learning.
The most well known is toes that look as if they're frostbitten, also known as "COVID toes," but others are still coming to light.
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) has been tracking the dermatological effects that COVID-19 patients are experiencing through a registry where healthcare providers can submit entries. The AAD has over 600 submissions so far from more than 25 countries.

Why is it that we don't see any articles written about people who have had the virus but have had no symptoms whatsoever? Ah, maybe because that does not cause fear?? Gives some good insight into the motivations of the so-called media.

My aunt had covid toes, said really painful couldn't sleep. Even the sheets touching them hurt. She was tested for the virus and the antibodies and it both came back negative. Seems wrong.

Many of the new skin problems aren't exclusive to the coronavirus, meaning that even if you see them, you don't necessarily have the virus. Then why in the title you say it’s symptoms of the China virus? Explain please?
