Boris Johnson warns of ‘hard struggle’ in months ahead in new year message

Boris Johnson has said the UK faces a 'hard struggle' in the coming months but the country will bounce back from coronavirus in 2021. In his new year message, the Prime Minister reflected on the past 12 months during which 'we lost too many loved ones before their time' because of the pandemic. But he said a 'spirit of togetherness' was rediscovered in 2020, in which people 'pulled the stops out to keep the country moving in the biggest crisis we have faced for generations'. Mr Johnson praised scientists who produced the world’s first effective treatment for coronavirus, as well as those who worked on the Oxford vaccine.
