The coronavirus pandemic is threatening the entire human race, the United Nations said Wednesday as it launches a humanitarian response that includes appeals for $2 billion for the world’s poorest people.
“COVID-19 is threatening the whole of humanity – and the whole of humanity must fight back. Global action and solidarity are crucial. Individual country responses are not going to be enough,” Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in announcing the initiative.
