The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a major humanitarian crisis, China’s permanent representative to the United Nations Geneva has said, warning of the challenges facing international human rights organizations to address its impact.

“It is fair to say that the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a serious humanitarian crisis and exposed problems in multilateral human rights bodies, including the persistent inadequate attention and input to issues like economic, social and cultural rights, social equality, protection of vulnerable groups and anti-racial discrimination,” said Chen Xu in an interview with CGTN from his office in Switzerland.
