UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday said that a COVID-19 vaccine may be the only thing that can bring back normalcy, hoping for just that before the end of the year.

During a video conference, Antonio Guterres said, “A safe and effective vaccine may be the only tool that can return the world to a sense of ‘normalcy,’ saving millions of lives and countless trillions of dollars.”

He called for its accelerated development and accessibility to all, adding it must have a universal global benefit and “allow us to control the pandemic.”

“We need an ambitious effort to ensure that international stakeholders operate through a harmonized, integrated and leveraged approach to maximize the speed and scale needed for the universal deployment of such a vaccine by the end of 2020,” he insisted.
