In celebration of the NHS and their tireless work during the coronavirus crisis households across the country clapped in appreciation. The NHS’ 72nd anniversary has stood out from others due to the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. Prime Minister Boris Johnson paid tribute to NHS workers earlier today for facing the health crisis head-on in the most challenging year in the services’ history.
In a video posted to his Twitter, Mr Johnson said: “Seventy-one times before our National Health Service has marked the anniversary of its founding but never in circumstances quite like this.
“Because this year, we’ve seen not only the greatest challenge the NHS has ever faced but also an unprecedented outpouring of affection and support for that institution.”
