Coronavirus is the biggest challenge in the world after World War II, says the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

He made the remarks after attending an event at the UN headquarters on Tuesday.

In the meantime, the UN Secretary-General said that coronavirus is hurting the roots of society, taking lives and disrupting people’s livelihoods. Nothing like this has been seen in the past.

The Secretary-General expressed this concern in a UN report on the potential impact of coronavirus on socioeconomic activities.

The number of confirmed cases around the world is now nearing 860,000, with more than 42,000 deaths.
