Usually, the messages of the UN Secretary-General are broadcasted in fixed six languages which are English, Chinese, Spanish, French, Arabic, and Russian.
In his message, Guterres said 2020 was a tough marred by tragedies, trials, and tears as COVID-19 upended our lives and plunged the world into grief and suffering.
The message said that the world is going through an unprecedented increase in poverty, inequality, and hunger due to disappearing jobs and mounting debts while insecurity is rampant amid domestic violence and child abuse.
However, he shed a light on the positive progress in the world including the scientists developing a vaccine in record time, countries coming together to develop policies for preventing climate catastrophes, and frontline workers fighting bravely against the pandemic. He stressed on the communities to work together to multiply the efforts of positive work.
