Coronavirus warning – what colour are your lips? Hidden signs of COVID-19

Coronavirus is an infectious disease that has been confirmed in more than six and a half million people across the world. You could be at risk of the virus if your lips appear to turn blue, it’s been revealed.

The UK has officially passed the peak of the coronavirus infection.

The government has advised the public to remain indoors in an attempt to curb the spread of the infection.

Despite nearing the final stretch of the COVID-19 outbreak, hundreds of people are still dying in the UK everyday.

You may have a coronavirus infection if you develop blue lips or a blue face, doctors have warned.
