Jurgen Klopp admits to having been moved to tears by a video showing NHS staff singing Liverpool’s ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ anthem.
Mary Foy, Labour’s MP for Durham City, has posted footage on social media of healthcare staff – including coronavirus and non-coronavirus specialists – working together in isolation chambers.
Despite being separated by glass doors, those involved could be seen swaying their arms and joining together in song.
Thursday evening also saw a nation unite amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic to deliver a collective show of support in the ‘Clap for Carers’ campaign.
Klopp is among those to have hailed the efforts of those doing their utmost to keep the country on its feet.
He told Liverpool’s official website :
“I think yesterday I was sent a video of people in the hospital just outside the intensive care area and when they started singing You’ll Never Walk Alone I started crying immediately. It’s unbelievable.
“But it shows everything, these people not only work but they have such a good spirit. They are used to helping other people, we need to get used to it because usually, we have our own problems and stuff. But it’s their job, they do it day in and day out.
Emotional watching this. So much respect for NHS staff at the best of times, but at the moment, putting their lives on the line to protect us from this virus, wow! Total heroes. #YNWA #NHSHeroes pic.twitter.com/VJlA4WrsXO

“They bring themselves, if you want, in danger because they help ill, sick and seriously handicapped people, so I couldn’t admire them more and appreciate it more, I really couldn’t.”
