The United Nations offers support to the global ceasefire during coronavirus pandemic.
The news has come out hours after the US blocked a UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution that called for bringing a ceasefire.
According to details, a US State Department spokesperson told journalists in Washington, “In our view, the goal should be to support the Secretary-General’s call for a global ceasefire,”
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had called the nations to unite together for a global ceasefire during coronavirus pandemic.
The US had earlier blocked a UNSC resolution that announced a global ceasefire. The State Department explained, “Unfortunately, China has been determined to use this resolution to advance false narratives about its response to the Covid-19 outbreak in Wuhan.”
Two diplomatic sources reported to the international news source that the US wanted all the references to be excluded from the resolution’s content.
The diplomatic sources said that UNSC member states had been struggling over the resolution for more than half a year. US delegation had regularly talked to them while drafting the resolution.
A diplomatic source said, “The US rejection was a surprise for all,”
“Instead of focusing on real issues, discussions have been transformed into a US-China fight,” the diplomat said. “We are back to square one.”
The international news source said, “The Trump administration is using this moment to assail an international healthy body, and zero in on its ire for China’s handling of the pandemic,”
UK Government is launching a Covid-19 alert system in England to track the virus.
According to details, the threat level of coronavirus will be measure on a scale of one to five and be adjusted as per the data.
