As the COVID-19 pandemic develops and more and more people get the disease, rarer symptoms or signs evolve. And one of these signs is that you get purplish blotches on the toes. You can get it elsewhere in the body as well. And it could be just a mild form of inflammation of the arteries from an overactive immune system. And it’s said to be more common in children and in young people, than in older people, but it is apparently, one sign that you’ve got COVID-19. Not guaranteed – there are other causes of it as well.
