A 10-year-old girl has been diagnosed with the new coronavirus Covid-19 despite not showing any of the usual symptoms.

The symptoms did not match those usually signalling Covid-19 - and instead included convulsions, a rash, pain in her legs and ulcers.

Parents from an unnamed primary school have been sent a letter detailing the case.

According to Plymouth Live a number of schools have issued a warning to parents after the girl was confirmed to have COVID-19.

Because of her unusual symptoms it was originally thought she had tonsilitis.

 

The girl, who has no underlying health issues, is said to have suffered from a temperature which reached 41.6C and caused convulsions, but she does not have a dry, persistent cough.

She also has had red, mottled skin, ulcers in her throat, "severe" pain in her legs and an aching body.

The message from a number of Plymouth schools, adds: "The head teacher has spoken to her parents this morning and she is starting to be able to sit up and move around for short periods of time.

"Hopefully this is the beginning of her recovery. Antibiotics did not help with this virus and the parents have only been able to give her paracetamol.

"Please monitor your children and yourselves carefully for symptoms, stay at home and stay safe."
