UN Secretary-General: the pandemic has become the most serious crisis since World War II

Antonio Guterres said that it could lead to increased instability and conflict in the world.

The coronavirus pandemic is the largest global crisis since World War II, said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, expressing concern that it could provoke conflicts around the world.

According to Guterres, the scale of the crisis is due to “a disease that poses a threat to every person in the world, and the economic impact that will bring a recession that has no parallel in the recent past.”
“The combination of these two factors and the danger that the pandemic is contributing to increased instability, increased unrest, and increased conflict are the things that make us believe that this is the most difficult crisis we have faced since World War II,” he told reporters.

More than 40,000 people have died in connection with the spread of the epidemic around the world, which causes economic devastation.
