Baby thought to be Scotland’s youngest Covid-19 patient recovers from virus


A three-week-old girl who was believed to be Scotland’s youngest coronavirus patient has recovered from the virus to the delight of her parents and the medical team who cared for her.

Peyton Maguire was born eight weeks premature on March 26 and was delivered by C-section at University Hospital Wishaw after mother Tracy was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia.

After being cared for in an incubator in the neonatal unit, the 3lb 11oz baby tested positive for Covid-19 on April 15 – despite not having any symptoms.

On Monday, after two negative tests, Peyton has now been allowed to leave the hospital with her parents.​HELP US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
