UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres marveled at the number of coronavirus victims worldwide. RIA Novosti reports.
Guterres said that humanity has reached a terrible milestone: the pandemic claimed the lives of a million people. He stressed that this is a staggering figure.
The secretary general also noted that there is no end in sight to the epidemic and shocks. At the same time, Guterres added that countries can overcome this problem and must learn from mistakes. He said that until the world has received the vaccine, it is necessary to keep distance, wear masks and wash your hands.
Guterres previously said that humanity has failed the coronavirus pandemic test. According to the Secretary General, the world was unable to prevent the spread of the virus due to the countries' refusal to cooperate. He added that the world must unite within global institutions to avoid chaos.
