ITV has been issued with a warning after an episode of Lorraine fronted by Lorraine Kelly racked up nearly 4,000 complaints.

In the programme, Dr Hilary said: “Those people who haven’t been vaccinated, we’d really love you to think again and be vaccinated because 90% of people in hospital are unvaccinated right now with Covid.”

A clarification was broadcast on the show two days later, explaining the statistic related to patients in intensive care units rather than the proportion of unvaccinated Covid-19 patients in hospital.

My comment – rather than condemn his statement, the clarification shows the serious consequences of not being vaccinated. Being in hospital is one thing; being in intensive care is another. If anything, it validates his statement all the more.
