The family of a ‘miracle baby’ currently on an oxygen machine as she battles coronavirus told of their despair over people who are still not taking the outbreak seriously.

Erin, aged just 6 months was born weighing only 5lbs 4oz and with a heart condition that required open-heart surgery. She has also battled problems with her windpipe but, after months of treatment, she stood a good chance of recovery.
However, last Friday, she was confirmed as having COVID-19.
Because only one parent can stay with her, mother Emma Bates, 29, remains with Erin at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool.
