Disruption of supplychains made access to the much-needed COVID-19 therapeutics, diagnostics and PPEs beyond the reach of many developing countries.

    5. This Session of the General Assembly comes at a critical time and momentous conjuncture in human history; indeed, this is the time when circumstances compel us to reiterate our plea to the international community to adopt an expanded and comprehensive response to the COVID 19 pandemic.

During the last year and a half, we believed that the whole world was united aroundthese same realities: on the one hand, our fragility in the face of a virus that does notrespect borders, ideologies or social condition; on the other, a spirit of unity andconfidence in science that has led us, among other things, to develop effective vaccinesagainst COVID-19 in an astonishingly short time frame
