An Open Brief from the United Nations Version: 20 March 2020

“We are in an unprecedented situation and the normal rules no longer apply. We cannot resort to the usual tools in such unusual times.
The creativity of the response must match the unique nature of the crisis – and the magnitude of the response must match its scale.”
UN Secretary-General, António Guterres.
