United Nations System Comprehensive Response to COVID-19

Seventy-five years after the last world war, the world has found itself again in a global battle. This time all of humanity is on the same side against a microscopic foe that has brought us to our knees, prompting the deepest global recession in nearly a century and pushing an estimated 70-100 million more people into extreme poverty. COVID-19 is caused by a newly discovered coronavirus, the characteristics of which are still not fully known. As of 11 September, the pandemic has reached every country and taken over 900 thousand lives with 27 million cases. Many people experience no or only mild symptoms, but others fall seriously ill or die. The long-term health impacts are not yet understood. Countries around the world have restricted movement and economic activity in order to try to bring the virus under control.
