Queen to honour UK health workers

London: Doctors, nurses, fundraisers and volunteers who have made “outstanding contributions” to the UK’s Covid response will be recognised in the 2020 Queen’s Birthday Honours list to be unveiled on October 10, Downing Street said on Sunday. The list, which is traditionally published in early June to coincide with the 94-year-old monarch’s official birthday celebrations, was postponed this year in order to consider nominations of people playing crucial roles during the first months of the Covid-19 effort. Downing Street said following approval from Queen Elizabeth II, hundreds of additional people will be honoured for their contributions tackling the deadly virus on the frontline and in their communities.
