Coronavirus: Trudeau says Canada's recovery depends on global recovery during UN meeting

CA, 01 Oct 2020
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday during a high-level United Nations meeting said that Canada's recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic depends on a global recovery.

"We have a collective responsibility to make sure no one is left behind," Trudeau said.

Director-General of the World Health Organization Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus discussed Tuesday's grim milestone of one million people having died from the novel coronavirus. He said science and solutions to the pandemic will be ineffective without solidarity, and calling for a rejection to nationalism.

Billionaire Bill Gates also joined the video call, saying the "world is on the brink of a great scientific achievement" with a COVID-19 vaccine likely being ready by early next year. He added that they'll likely have more than one vaccine ready. Gates also said they are building the system to "help reduce the damage of the next pandemic."
