Terrorist Groups May Use Virulent Coronavirus Strains To Launch Bio-Terror Attack, Warns UN Sec-Gen Antonio Guterres

Terror groups may gain access to virulent strains of the novel coronavirus and use it to launch a bio-terror attack, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned.

After a closed-door discussion at the UN Security Council on Thursday (9 April), Guterres in a brief press statement said: "While the COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost a health crisis, its implications are much more far-reaching. The pandemic also poses a significant threat to the maintenance of international peace and security -- potentially leading to an increase in social unrest and violence that would greatly undermine our ability to fight the disease."

Guterres spoke by video conference at the UNSC meeting on the COVID-19 impact. It was the first discussion of the UNSC on the pandemic.
