United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called the coronavirus the number one global threat today. He voiced this opinion at a press conference on Wednesday prior to the UN General Assembly high-level week, TASS reports.

"The virus is the number one global security threat in our world today," he stressed.

For this reason, the Secretary General added, he is going to urge to cease all conflicts worldwide by the end of 2020. "In my speech to the General Assembly on Tuesday, I will make an appeal to the international community to mobilize all efforts for the global ceasefire to become a reality by the end of the year," he noted.

The coronavirus pandemic has gotten out of hand and the number of its victims will soon surpass 1 mln, Antonio Guterres said. "Soon, we will pass the grimmest of milestones: 1 million lives lost to the virus. Meanwhile, the outbreak is out of control," he noted.
