Premature baby believed to be Scotland's youngest Covid-19 patient recovers from virus

Peyton Maguire was born eight weeks premature at University Hospital Wishaw on March 26 – after mum Tracy was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia. Mrs Maguire said: “When I heard Peyton had coronavirus I was sobbing and really worried about how it could affect her respiratory system, her lungs and if it was life-threatening. “Peyton is the most precious person in the world to me and it shows the trust I had in the midwives and the other staff that I put her care in their hands - because that is that they are trained to do.” Peyton is now back at home in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, with her 27-year-old mother - a digital marketing student - and 28-year-old father AJ, who works as a personal trainer and boxing coach. “Only someone who has been in our position can understand the gratitude we feel towards the hospital staff.” NHS Lanarkshire chief midwife Cheryl Clark said: “We're delighted that the fantastic care Peyton has received from our staff has meant she is well enough to go home, allowing AJ to be reunited with his wife and daughter.” Hear all the latest news from across Glasgow and the West on the hour, every hour, at Clyde 1.
