UN Calls for Global Ceasefire to Focus on Covid-19 Fight

UN Secretary-General António Guterres has urged warring parties across the world to lay down their weapons in support of the bigger battle against  COVID-19. The ceasefire would allow humanitarians to reach populations that are most vulnerable to the spread of COVID-19, which first emerged in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, and has now been reported in more than 180 countries. A separatist group in Cameroon has responded by declaring a two-week ceasefire.
