It has been almost a year and a half since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone around the globe has the same question in mind: “When will the world put an end to this pandemic so that we can resume our normal lives?”
Today is a special anniversary as we mark 75 years of collective work since the UN came into existence.
