UN chief on global COVID death toll: Mind numbing

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said the loss of one million people due to Covid-19 is “mind-numbing”. In a statement, Guterres said, “They were fathers and mothers, wives and husbands, brothers and sisters, friends and colleagues… The pain has been multiplied by the savageness of this disease. Risks of infection kept families from bedsides. And the process of mourning and celebrating a life was often made impossible.”

He warned, “there is no end in sight to the spread of the virus, the loss of jobs, the disruption of education, the upheaval to our lives.” – PTI
