The world’s first global poll conducted during the COVID-19 crisis to ask people what their biggest needs, hopes and fears are, 75 years after the UN was founded, has turned up some surprising findings.

One of them, perhaps, is the fact that more people in low and middle income countries, than in rich nations, called for greater global solidarity for communities badly hit by the pandemic. 

In an interview with UN News’s Daniel Johnson, Under-Secretary-General Fabrizio Hochschild highlights the impact of the pandemic on people’s responses and explains what concrete action will be essential in the years ahead.
