WHO Director-General on human solidarity and the defining health crisis of our time – COVID-19

“This is the defining global health crisis of our time. The days, weeks and months ahead will be a test of our resolve, a test of our trust in science, and a test of solidarity.Crises like this tend to bring out the best and worst in humanity. Like me, I’m sure you have been touched by the videos of people applauding health workers from their balconies, or the stories of people offering to do grocery shopping for older people in their community. This amazing spirit of human solidarity must become even more infectious than the virus itself. Although we may have to be physically apart from each other for a while, we can come together in ways we never have before” said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros during a press conference, 16 March 2020. “We’re all in this together. And we can only succeed together.” ”
