It has now been confirmed that one million people worldwide have died from Covid-19 since the disease first emerged in China late last year.
Each of the victims left behind a grieving family, whose pain cannot be overlooked.
But tough as this year has been, we need to be reassured overall: Modern medicine and cutting-edge technologies mean the world is better prepared to face this pandemic than at any time in the history of China. humanity.
Thanks to 21st century ventilators, deaths were mostly confined to those who were already nearing the end of their lives. Social distancing has been made acceptable by online communication. And if and when a vaccine is invented, it will be possible to deploy it fairly quickly around the world.
As for the second wave here in the UK, we have to remember to put it in context.
Yes, the cases are increasing in Britain. But since handwashing, masks, and social distancing mean that we are giving ourselves lower doses of the virus and being less sick, hospitalizations and deaths are still low.
Yesterday there were less than 2,000 Covid patients in UK hospitals.
2020 has been a truly miserable year. But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

WHAT do those who blame the “bad conservatives” for university problems really want to happen?
Our hearts go out to the poor freshmen who have arrived on campus this week to be told that they may be banned from going home with their families for Christmas.
But if the death toll rises in December, it would surely be folly to allow students to travel across the country – from overcrowded student apartments, home to their parents and grandparents, and then back.
If those who blame the government for the miserable situation can find an alternative solution – one that would allow students to see their families without fanning the flames of the second wave – we are all ears.
Otherwise, stop the free growls.

GOOD on chief Brexit negotiator David Frost for not taking any trash from Brussels.
Some have said that the EU will never back down on state aid spending and that the current round of negotiations is doomed to failure.
But with the pressing time approaching, Eurocrats are ready to offer No 10 guarantees that they will not exploit last year’s Brexit deal to try to reduce the use of subsidies in Great Britain. Brittany.
We can’t wait to see what Lord Frost and his nerves of steel can accomplish in the coming weeks of talks.
