Piers Morgan praises Filipino nurses in UK as ‘unsung heroes’ in COVID-19 fight

Filipino nurses have been always known for their professionalism and dedication to work, so much so for such a long time their services are not only sought in the country but in other countries as well.

And it is not only here they are making their mark of professionalism, British journalist and television personality Piers Morgan commended the “outstanding care” of Filipino nurses in the United Kingdom battling the COVID-19 pandemic.

Morgan acknowledged several Filipino nurses working for the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS), a publicly-funded healthcare system in Englandduring a Good Morning Britain telecast.

“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.

Morgan was honest enough to acknowledge that it was recently he found out that many health workers in the U.K. are Filipinos, gave the “unsung heroes” a shout out because “we forget about this extraordinary workforce that comes from all over the world to help the NHS.”

Philippine Ambassador Antonio Lagdameo
to the United Kingdom recently lauded the Filipino frontliners numbering around 21,000 who are we are  working both for the NHS and private hospitals.

Filipinos are numbering around 200,000 living in the said European country.
