The United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres on Monday urged countries to immediately stop waging conflicts around the world in light of a "common enemy," The Business Insider reports.

"It is time to put armed conflict on lock-down and focus together on the true fight of our lives," Guterres said, referring to the coronavirus pandemic that has placed numerous countries on lockdown. "The virus does not care about nationality or ethnicity, faction or faith. It attacks all, relentlessly."

"Meanwhile, armed conflict rages on around the world," Guterres said, adding that health networks in "war-ravaged countries" have since collapsed.

Due to the pandemic that has killed over 16,100 people and infected more than 367,000, Guterres said it was "time to put armed conflict on lockdown" and called for an "immediate global ceasefire in all corners of the world."
