A six-month-old baby who survived heart surgery not long ago has been infected by the deadly coronavirus.
According to the baby’s Parents who struggled 10 years before conceiving, baby Erin Bates has been fighting for her life from the very first day of her journey on earth.
She had open-heart surgery in December and January and also suffered respiratory syncytial virus, which causes bronchiolitis and pneumonia in babies and can be fatal.
She then suffered tracheomalacia and bronchomalacia which required the use of the CPAP machine.
Baby Erin Bates, nicknamed ‘miracle baby’ is now on an oxygen machine as she has been struggling with windpipe problems since birth.
But just when they thought all was well, they were slapped with the coronavirus news.
The heartbroken mother of this baby, Mrs. Bates took to Facebook to advise people to take coronavirus seriously after her daughter’s diagnosis.
‘Both myself and Wayne are utterly heartbroken yet again that we are in a position where we may lose our little girl if she doesn’t carry on fighting.
Please, please, please keep Erin in your prayers. We can’t lose her over this virus. She has battled through too much – we need her, she completes us.’
I hope that those who haven’t taken this virus seriously read this and I hope it now sinks in.’ she lamented.
