"Together, we will defeat this virus and rebuild a fairer world -- as united global citizens and united nations," the UN chief said in his video message for "One World: Together At Home" concert organised by international advocacy organisation Global Citizen on Saturday night.
"We face a crisis unlike any other. To overcome it, we must unite," he noted.
"Tonight, through the universal language of music, we salute the bravery and sacrifice of health heroes and others," said the secretary-general.
"As we do so, let's remember the most vulnerable," he said.
"Please join our call for a global ceasefire to focus on our common enemy -- the virus."
"Thank you for your support for the lifesaving work of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the other humanitarian agencies," said Guterres.
Speaking at a virtual press conference in Geneva on March 6, WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that his organisation has been working with Global Citizen for several weeks on the "One World: Together At Home" concert series.
"Now we're working with Lady Gaga to take this concept and make it even bigger," he said. - Xinhua/Asian News Network
