  ‘Ubuntu’, a concept which originated in S. Africa in mid-19th century, is a Nguni Bantu term meaning ‘humanity’. In common translation, ‘Ubuntu’ is taken as “I am because we are”. It is based on a firm belief in universal bond between humans. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated to re-kindle the spirit of Ubuntu as it makes sharing of COVID-19 data, knowledge and research essential. The only way humanity can stand up to the challenge posed by SARS-CoV2 is by means of universal brotherhood and cooperation despite territorial disputes, political/religious/ideological differences and unending desire for world dominance.
