UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called Thursday on families and global leaders to "protect our children," who stand to suffer severe consequences of the pandemic even if they are at lower risk.

"What started as a public health emergency has snowballed into a formidable test for the global promise to leave no one behind," he said.

"We must act now on each of these threats to our children," the UN chief noted. "Leaders must do everything in their power to cushion the impact of the pandemic."
