3. SOUNDBITE (English) Stephane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General:

“New York City is now in a phase of community transmission, and I think UN staff, as we said, are New Yorkers, which is to be expected that eventually one of our staff would be impacted. Staff member who has tested positive is well and has not had any contact with any other UN personnel since before the onset of symptoms. We do not expect this or any other infections among UN personnel in NY to have critical impact on our business because of the very strong risk mitigation measures we’ve been taking for more than a week now, including reducing greatly our footprint.”
