Tunisia-Tunisia embraces UN global humanitarian response strategy against coronavirus

Tunisia posivtvly welcomed the declaration made by the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the launch of a “global humanitarian response plan” to fight the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
The COVID-19 is threatening the whole of humanity – and so the whole of humanity must fight back,” Guterres told as he announced the initiative.
“Individual country responses are not going to be enough,” he said, which requires increasing the efforts of all countries to deal with the virus.
The announcement by Guterres comes after Tunisia’s request for convening an emergency session of the UN Security Council and proposing a draft resolution to examine ways to control the spread of the coronavirus.
The draft resolution involves a call for international solidarity to halt the spread of the coronavirus and limit its fallouts, particularly in conflict zones.
The initiative invites countries and influential stakeholders to coordinate on humanitarian and medical aid.
It also consists of urging the World Health Organisation to continue providing operational support to governments and various partners so that they can meet the needs and develop a vaccine against this virus.
The U.N. Secretary-General appealed Wednesday for $2 billion to help the world’s most vulnerable nations cope with the coronavirus pandemic.
A comprehensive approach is the only way to fight COVID-19, says the UN when launching the global humanitarian response plan.
