As the Health Secretary Matt Hancock put it recently, it has been a “year to forget” for many people.
The pandemic, which prompted a global shutdown, has impacted every aspect of daily life in 2020.
The human cost has been painful – with more than 1.6 million deaths linked to the virus recorded worldwide.
A year on from those initial reports of an unknown disease in Wuhan, China, vaccines now offer humanity hope.

On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan, we are joined by our science correspondent Thomas Moore and Ashish Joshi, Sky’s health correspondent, as we reflect on an unprecedented year and look ahead to 2021.
