The UK recognized doctors and scientists in the fight against covid-19, as well as Daniel Craig, on Queen Elizabeth II’s annual New Year’s list of honors.

Daniel Craig, who left the role of James Bond spy, aka 007, is recognized for his outstanding contribution to the film “No Time to Die”.

Great tributes also come to many involved in fighting the covid-19 pandemic: England, Scotland and Wales medical directors Chris Whitty, Gregor Smith and Frank Athertonm, respectively.

Likewise, England’s deputy medical officers appear, with Jonathan Van-Tam knighted and Jenny Harries named lady.

Other awards come to entities involved in vaccine production, including Pfizer’s director of development, Rod MacKenzie, BioNTech’s commercial director, Sean Marett, and Moderna’s director of development, Melanie Ivarsson.

Cyclist Jason Kenny, who won his seventh gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics, is also knighted, as is his wife Laura Kenny, who is named lady, for being the first female Olympic athlete to win gold in three consecutive games.

Among the 78 Olympic and Paralympic athletes to be included on the list are swimmer Adam Peaty and diver Tom Daley.

Emma Raducanu, who stunned the tennis world by becoming the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam title with victory at the US Open, is another honoree.

Composer Bernie Taupin and actresses Joanna Lumley and Vanessa Redgrave are equally recognized.

New Year’s honors have been granted since the reign of Queen Victoria, in the 19th century, and aim to recognize not only well-known figures, but also those who contributed to national life.
