    More than 100 world leaders and government ministers are scheduled to speak at the #UN General Assembly’s special session that opens Thursday. They are to discuss the response to COVID-19 and the best path to recovery from the #pandemic, which has claimed one-and-a-half million lives and shattered economies in countries both rich and poor. With news of multiple #vaccines on the cusp of approval and trillions of dollars flowing into global recovery efforts, optimism is rising and the world is looking to the UN for leadership. What role can the UN play in leading the fight against pandemic? What hinders cooperation among countries? And how should vaccines be distributed globally?
