British scientist Tim Spector said on his Twitter page that people who doubt whether they have contracted Covid-19 or just contracted the seasonal SARS disease can know this through the nails, indicating that if lines appear on the nails, this may indicate Corona virus
The scientist supported his conclusion with an image of a woman’s hand with distinct marks on the nails.
“The nails are recovering from the infection and regrowing, leaving a clear streak,” he said. This phenomenon called in the scientific community is referred to as “Po lines”. It is also characteristic of infectious diseases such as measles, mumps or scarlet fever.
Do your nails look odd? COVID nails are increasingly being recognised as the nails recover after infection and the growth recovers leaving a clear line. Can occur without skin rashes and appears harmless pic.twitter.com/Q1Lfdrc9Dc
