WATCH: A year of unimaginable misery: The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic
To say that the year 2020 was an eventful year would be an understatement.
Calamities such as the eruption of Taal Volcano, earthquakes, and typhoons struck the country one (right) after the other, claiming lives and leaving thousands homeless.
But no one was prepared enough for a damning health crisis that has since changed the course of lives of millions of people worldwide—the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
In this year-end report, INQUIRER.net looks back at the pandemic that hounded the world, including the Philippines, this 2020. We also sit down with government officials to discuss their plans, action and outlook for next year as the health crisis lingers on.
