вЂњThe COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis unlike any of the crises in our lives, and the General Assembly session, thus, this year will be unlike any other,вЂќ the source of his words quoted.
The secretary-general noted that soon the pandemic could claim the millionth life, and one should not rely too much on a vaccine вЂ” вЂњby itself, it will not eliminate the crisis.вЂќ The drug can become a blessing only if it is available to all people on Earth, the politician said.
At the same time, Antonio Guterres urged to expand the list of tools that can help fight the epidemic, especially in the coming year.
