U.N. Says 1 Million Coronavirus Deaths Due to Nations’ Lack of Preparedness and Solidarity

HeadlineSep 25, 2020

At the United Nations General Assembly, Secretary-General António Guterres warned Thursday the coronavirus pandemic has killed nearly a million people, infected 30 million, and remains out of control due to a lack of preparedness, cooperation, unity and solidarity among world governments.

Secretary-General António Guterres: “This pandemic is a wake-up call for even more catastrophic challenges that may arise, starting with the climate crisis. If we meet these with the same disunity and disarray we have seen this year, I fear the worst.”
