UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres attends a news conference at the UN headquarters in New York on Sept. 18, 2019.

UNITED NATIONS - Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned the U.N. Security Council on Thursday that the coronavirus pandemic is threatening international peace and security - "potentially leading to an increase in social unrest and violence that would greatly undermine our ability to fight the disease."

The U.N.'s most powerful body, which has been silent on COVID-19 since it started circling the globe sickening and killing tens of thousands, issued its first brief press statement after the closed meeting. It expressed "support for all efforts of the secretary-general concerning the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to conflict-affected countries and recalled the need for unity and solidarity with all those affected."
