A Wearside woman, who was the UK’s first successful heart transplant baby, is pleading with the public to listen to social distancing advice and help stem the spread of coronavirus.
Kaylee Davidson-Olley, now 32, has been told she is in the highest risk category for Covid-19.
In 1987 she became the first baby in Europe to successfully receive a heart transplant and has since made it her mission to raise awareness of organ donation.
On Sunday, the Government took the extraordinary measure to issue guidance to shield extremely vulnerable people by minimising interaction between those who are extremely vulnerable and others.
Kaylee and her mother Carol have been speaking to ITV Tyne Tees to try to spread the message about the importance of social distancing.
