Pandemics and the challenges of sustaining peace – UN Chief to the Security Council
Antonio Guterres called on world leaders to get together and work out a common strategy to fight the pandemic
The United Nations Secretary-General told the BBC the “tragedy” is that world leaders have failed to “come together and deal with COVID-19 in a clear and coordinated manner.”.
António Guterres said: “Each country has its own policy; different countries have different views, different strategies, and this allowed the virus to spread. “.
According to the UN Secretary General, “it is obvious that we lack leadership” in the fight against the virus. Guterres called on “the leading countries … to get together and develop a common strategy, and then bring the entire world community together.”.
UN estimates that by the end of the year, 8% of the world’s population, about 500 million people, could be in poverty due to the crisis caused by the virus.
