Brief Answer: most likely due to static electricity Detailed Answer: Greetings of the day It's not due to virus infection. It is most likely due to static electricity interference. There is no cause for concern. We all have static electricity over our body surface. So in some of individuals who come in contact with electricity appliance there is redistribution of the electrical charges which causes pins and needle sensation over the body. Wearing pure cotton clothes can prevent it to some extent. Rest be assured everything is alright. Wishing you a happy and healthy life in case you require any further assistance, will be glad to assist you. Take care Best Regards Dr Deepak Kishore MBBS, MS, MCH
