First Twins Born With Covid Celebrate Christmas

FIRST twins born with Covid in the UK celebrate Christmas at home with family

Mum of the first twins believed to have been born with Covid in Britain, Sarah Curtis, 34, from Cumbria, considers it a kind of Christmas miracle that her precious babies will get to spend the festive season at home with their family, considering it was originally believed one of the babies would not survive. Born ten weeks early on July 3, Kenna and Lissa weighed just 3lbs each, and were closely monitored for almost two months in hospital before they overcame the deadly virus.

Sarah said: “I was genuinely so afraid that I was going to lose them – it was so terrifying and paralysing.

“I could have lost them, I could have died there in the hospital – but we’re here now looking forward to celebrating Christmas together as a family.”

She added: “It’s not what’s around the tree but who is around the tree – and I’m so happy with who is around the tree.”
