Sir Lenny Henry writes letter urging black Britons to get caught by Covid


Sir Lenny Henry wrote an open letter encouraging black Britons to take the Covid-19 vaccine, signed by some of the UK’s most prominent names including movie stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Thandie Newton, author Malorie Blackman and radio DJ Trevor. Nelson.
In the letter, Sir Henry acknowledges the “legitimate concerns and concerns” that people feel, adding: “We know that changes have to happen and that it is difficult to trust certain institutions and authorities.”

He continues: “But we ask you to trust the vaccine facts of our own teachers, doctors, scientists involved in vaccine development, general practitioners, not just in the UK but across the world including the Caribbean. and Africa.

“Many of them are our parents, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the people of this country from this pandemic.”

It comes as new data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed that older people of black African descent are more than seven times more likely than white Britons not to have received a coronavirus vaccine.
