Shared responsibility, global solidarity: Responding to the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19- SG Report Socioeconomic Impact of Covid-19
We are facing a global health crisis unlike any in the 75-year history of the United Nations — one that is killing people, spreading human suffering, and upending people’s lives. But this is much more than a health crisis. It is a human crisis. The coronavirus disease (COVID19) is attacking societies at their core. A global recession – perhaps of record dimensions – is a near certainty. In the face of such an unprecedented situation in recent history, the creativity of the response must match the unique nature of the crisis – and the magnitude of the response must match its scale. No country will be able to exit this crisis alone.
