António Guterres (UN Secretary-General) on the World Health Organization COVID-19 Launch Event
24 Apr 2020 -  Remarks by António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations on the World Health Organization COVID-19 Launch Event of a landmark collaboration to accelerate the development, production and equitable distribution of vaccines, diagnostics, and therapeutics for COVID-19.

"In an interconnected world, none of us is safe until all of us are safe. COVID-19 respects no borders. COVID-19 anywhere is a threat to people everywhere.
The world needs the development, production and equitable delivery of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine, therapeutics and diagnostics.
Not a vaccine or treatments for one country or one region or one-half of the world — but a vaccine and treatment that are affordable, safe, effective, easily-administered and universally available — for everyone, everywhere.
A world free of COVID-19 requires the most massive public health effort in history.
Data must be shared, production capacity prepared, resources mobilized, communities engaged, and politics set aside.
I know we can do it. I know we can put people first".
