During a Good Morning Britain telecast on Tuesday, April 7, British journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan commended the “outstanding care” of Filipino nurses helping fight the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom.
The news anchor went on to acknowledge by name several Filipino nurses working for England’s publicly-funded healthcare system, the National Health Service (NHS), saying: “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.”
He then added, "So thank you to all the Filipinos who are here doing all this amazing work and to every other immigrant 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.”
