Only a COVID-19 vaccine will allow return to ‘normalcy’ : UN General Secretary

A COVID-19 vaccine may be the only thing that can bring back “normalcy,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said , hoping for just that before the end of the year.


“A safe and effective vaccine may be the only tool that can return the world to a sense of ‘normalcy,’ saving millions of lives and countless trillions of dollars,” he added during a video conference with the 50 or so African countries that are members of the United Nations.

He called for its accelerated development and accessibility to all, adding it must have a “universal global benefit” and “allow us to control the pandemic.” “We need an ambitious effort to ensure that international stakeholders operate through a harmonized, integrated and leveraged approach to maximize the speed and scale needed for the universal deployment of such a vaccine by the end of 2020,” he insisted.


संयुक्त राष्ट्र महासचिव एंटोनियो गुटेरेस ने कहा कि COVID -19 वैक्सीन एकमात्र ऐसी चीज हो सकती है, जो "सामान्य स्थिति" ला सकती है।

“एक सुरक्षित और प्रभावी टीका एकमात्र उपकरण हो सकता है जो दुनिया को ‘सामान्यता’ की भावना के साथ लौटा सकता है, लाखों लोगों की जान और डॉलर के अनगिनत खरबों की बचत करेगा,”

उन्होंने कहा कि इसके त्वरित विकास और सभी तक पहुंच बनाने के लिए 2020 के अंत मे वैक्सीन आने की संभावना है
