The international organization is reporting that 86 employees have COVID-19, according to the Associated Press.
Most of the cases are in Europe, but others also are popping up in the United States, Asia and Africa, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
To keep the infection from spreading, employees are staying away from their offices, he said, according to AP.
At UN headquarters in New York, the number of staffers’ passes swiped stood at 140 Friday, down from 11,000 swipes on a normal day, Dujarric said.
In Geneva, the number of workers coming to the office has dropped from 4,000 to only 70, Dujarric said, according to the AP.
