The crisis that the coronavirus pandemic caused in the world is the worst since the Second World War, as UN Secretary-General António Guterres stated, the BBC reports.

According to him, coronavirus is a threat to all of humanity, and will also have economic consequences that will provoke a recession.

"This gives reason to believe that this is indeed the biggest crisis of those that we have had to deal with since the Second World War," the UN Secretary-General said.
