  • ITV News published this video item, entitled “Imams use Friday prayers to urge community to get Covid jab | ITV News” – below is their description.

    The situation everywhere is already exceptionally grim, but for Muslim communities hit especially hard by the virus, there is added upset when current pressures mean funerals cannot be carried out in line with their faith.

    You need only look at the number of new graves at burial sites to realise the extent of the tragedy unfolding.

    To help prevent further deaths, Imams used Friday prayers to encourage their communities to accept the vaccine when it is offered. Whatever impact that has, it will be too late to spare many families their grief.
