189 UN Staffs Test Positive To Coronavirus



3 United Nations staffs have reportedly died of coronavirus related complications globally, while 189 of its staffs have also tested positive to the virus as of Sunday 13th April evening, according to the deputy spokesperson of the United Nations Secretary General, Farhan Haq.

The Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed said at a computer-generated briefing to the member of states last week that an unmatched sense of urgency has driven the UN's response to this outbreak.

He said that;

"In the end, it comes down to this: if Covid-19 remains active somewhere, we cannot be safe anywhere. And if we do not confront the pandemic and its consequences simultaneously, the virus will continue to run like wildfire, taking lives, affecting people and threatening social cohesion."
