Covid-19 lays bare social inequality, warns UN chief

THE Covid-19 crisis “has revealed how unequal our societies are,” said United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in his message released today for the World Health Day, reported Xinhua.

Highlighting the inequalities and injustices that have been apparent throughout the pandemic, the UN chief said in his message for the day to be marked on Wednesday that the vast majority of vaccine doses administered so far have been confined to “a few wealthy countries” or those producing the shots cleared for distribution.
