Coronavirus Pandemic ‘Is a Call to Action,’ U.N. Secretary General Says
The United Nations issued a report calling the coronavirus the most challenging issue the world has faced since World War Two.
It is a combination. On one hand of a disease that represents a threat to everybody in the world. And second because it has had an economic impact that will bring a recession. That probably has no parallel in the recent past. The combination of the two facts, and the risk that it contributes to enhance instability, enhance unrest, enhance conflict, are things that make us believe that this is indeed the most challenging crisis we have faced since the Second World War, and the one that needs a stronger and more effective response that is only possible in solidarity if everybody come together. And if we forget political games, and understand that it is humankind that is at stake. The message of the report we are reaching today is clear: Share the responsibility and global solidarity in response to the impacts of Covid-19. It is a call to action.
