GOOD Morning, UK’s Susanna Reid praised Adil Ray for “saving lives” by pushing his vaccines to South Asian heritage people.
The presenter, 46, was hailed by name during the government press conference on Tuesday after he was coordinate an online video addressing fake vaccine news.
Susanna introduced the segment with: “We talk about the superstars … yesterday at the government briefings, credit was paid to a particular TV star.
“The immunization program has been very successful, but in certain communities it needs a specific push.
“Dr. Nikki Kanani is the general practitioner who was present at the government briefing yesterday to pay homage to a number of individuals.”
Dr Kanani said during the press conference: “Since we put out our plans in February, the uptake from all ethnic groups has tripled.
“Progress is the direct result of the union of NHS groups that know and understand their communities; community and belief leaders have worked really closely with us; practical considerations of Ramadan and other shades.
“And the support is really strong from celebrities like Bake Off’s Nadiya Hussain, comedian Lenny Henry and TV star Adil Ray. So I want to thank everyone who participated in the effort. This force. You saved your life. “
After the clip, Susanna said: “Well done by the way!”
“We are all saving lives by taking vaccines,” Adil continued humbly. Good job.
“The Pakistani community, the Bangladeshi community, many ethnic minority communities have increased – four times, five times the capacity to use a vaccine.”
Susanna then praised Adil, saying: “I was deeply moved by the fact that you created it and as a result you saved your life.”
“Part of it, yes. We all have to do something, whether it’s taking care of our neighbors, keeping an eye on our friends, or being stuck at home Saturday night,” Adil said. Seeing low vaccine rates among parts of our community, I texted a few friends. “

“Your cell phone does a much better job.”
