A one-year-old girl has beaten coronavirus despite being born prematurely with a congenital heart defect and chronic lung disease.

Leah Peters, has spent much of her young life in and out of the hospital for operations and treatment, with her parents admitting they feared it would be a ‘real struggle’ for their daughter if she contracted coronavirus.
But resilient Leah stunned her mother and father, Agata and Michael Peters when she was sent home the day after testing positive for COVID-19, leading them to brand her a ‘little fighter’ who had ‘surprised us all.’.
Leah was taken to the emergency department at Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital at the end of March after she developed a cough and had low heart stats.

The little girl was born prematurely at just 32 weeks, which meant her underlying health conditions included a chronic lung disease that she has had since birth.
