- Morgan said the statement in the light of immigrants working to save lives in Britain
British journalist and television personality Piers Morgan acknowledged the efforts of Filipino nurses working in the UK.
As the world continues its efforts against the spread of coronavirus, medical workers are on the frontlines. Health workers serve day in and day out, even risking their safety for the public’s welfare. Even in the United Kingdom, the dedication of Filipino nurses remains to be unwavering as they continue their service.
Piers Morgan, is one of the many who expressed his gratitude to the Filipino nurses who are working in their hospitals.
During a Good Morning Britain telecast on Tuesday, Morgan praised Filipino nurses who are working for the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS), a publicly-funded healthcare system in England.
“It’s worth bearing in mind when we talk about immigrants in this country, these are the immigrants currently saving people’s lives. Coming here and actually enriching our country and doing an amazing job,” Morgan said.
“So thank you to all the Filipinos who are here doing all this amazing work and to every other working in the NHS currently. I hope at the end of this, we’ll have a, perhaps a different sentiment, a different feeling about what immigration has done for this country,” he added.
After learning that many medical workers in the UK are Filipinos, Morgan called them “unsung heroes” and said, “we forget about this extraordinary workforce that comes from all over the world to help the NHS.”
