As we wrap up 2020, we have a lot to look back on. With many people calling this past year the hardest year of their life.

The year 2020 will be remembered as a difficult year for many, mainly centered around the COVID-19 pandemic. There are multiple ways the pandemic has influenced lives. From illness to loss of loved ones, to unemployment and lockdowns, the pandemic has touched everyone.

The last few months have brought very few positives (unless of course you're Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, or another billionaire) for the US. The 2020 Presidential election couldn't escape the pandemic either. It became a focal point of the election process, with President Trump even testing positive for COVID-19.

Now that we've reached the end of the year, we're looking back at 2020, and the biggest stories of the year. But we're not choosing the biggest stories of the year, you are. Actually, you already have.

We have gone through thousands of news stories from 2020, and which ones you clicked on the most. Millions of clicks across half a dozen Shreveport-Bossier sites have brought us the results.

For this category, we're only looking at COVID-19 stories that are mostly about COVID-19. There are some stories that we came across that involved COVID-19 in some aspect (restaurants closing due to COVID-19 restrictions), but had another major theme.
