Covid survivor Tam McCue is one of the lucky ones. Earlier in the year he was in intensive care in the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley where he had been on a ventilator for nearly two weeks.
At one point Mr McCue, who could barely speak, didn't think he would live.
Fast forward five months and Mr McCue, of Barrhead, East Renfrewshire, is back from the brink.
He became desperately ill but, thankfully, it only went as far as his lungs. With coronavirus some patients have have suffered multiple organ failure which also affected their heart, kidneys, brain and gut.
