United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said human beings are facing "a crisis unlike any other" and urged all nations to unite together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Guterres made the remarks on Saturday in a video message for the "One World: Together at Home" concert. 

He said "we must unite" and called on global citizens to salute the bravery and sacrifice of health workers and others through the universal language of music.  

He also called for a global ceasefire to help people in war-torn regions receive lifesaving aid to fight the coronavirus pandemic and expressed thanks to the World Health Organization and other humanitarian agencies for their lifesaving work.
