The South Korean boy band will talk about the difficulties that future generations will face due to COVID-19, the committee said.

The UN Group of Friends of Solidarity for Global Health Security was launched by South Korea in 2020 to discuss health security issues, such as COVID-19. It involves 40 UN member states, with South Korea, Denmark, Sierra Leone, Qatar and Canada as co-chairs.
