People included on the list include those with cancer who may fall extremely unwell if they contract Covid-19. They are entitled to support from the UK Government, such as assistance with medication and food deliveries.
In the clip Doddie thanked the work of the NHS and Matt Hancock before saying: “My name is Doddie Weir and I have MND - a terminal illness with short and long term issues. I need your help
"Why is MND not on the very vulnerable persons list? Would it be possible you to work with MND Association and MND Scotland to change this?
“People with MND have a hard life in itself, never mind trying to fight the coronavirus.
“Please help us stay alive as long as possible. Thank you.”
The charity supports Doddie's plea. A spokesperson said: "Within Scotland we are aware that the Scottish government has taken the additional step of writing to clinicians asking them to identify which of their patients are considered to be at most risk and as such should be part of the ‘shielding’ group.
"Due to the nature of Motor Neurone Disease we are calling for all MND patients to be considered as vulnerable and to have access to this additional support."
