There is no doubt that the virus pandemic has affected a younger generation that can scare them severely, mentally and physically, for years. More than a year since the epidemic began, UNICEF WarnAnd the “Progress has gone backwards across nearly every major measure of childhood.”
“The number of hungry, isolated, ill-treated and anxious children who live in poverty and who are forced into marriage has increased. Meanwhile, their access to education, socialization and basic services including health, nutrition and protection has decreased,” said Henrietta Fore, UNICEF Executive Director, in statement.
Signs of that Children will bear the scars of the epidemic for years Coming unequivocally, “Fur continued.
UNICEF’s latest data is a stark reminder that the prolonged closure of the economy and schools is a flawed political decision. In a rare moment on Wednesday, Anthony Fauci Tell There is no scientific reason for CNN that the freedoms of people who get the COVID-19 vaccine continue to be restricted. Moreover, there was widespread evidence showing that children’s immune response to the virus is better than that of adults. But still, many schools are closed all over the world …
Fore asked governments to place children “at the center of recovery efforts,” particularly by “prioritizing schools in reopening plans.”
Here are UNICEF results that show that “nearly every indicator” of children’s progress has been reflected in the shadow of the closures:
- In developing countries, child poverty is projected to increase by 15 percent. Already, 140 million additional children are expected in these countries, in families living below the poverty line.
- Schools have closed to more than 168 million pupils globally for nearly a year. Two-thirds of the countries that have completely or partially shut down are in Latin America and the Caribbean.
- At least one in three students has not been able to access distance learning while their schools are closed.
- About 10 million additional child marriages could happen before the end of the decade, threatening years of progress in curtailing the practice.
- At least 1 in 7 children and youth lived under stay-at-home policies for most of the past year, resulting in feelings of anxiety, depression and isolation.
- As of November 2020, an additional 6 to 7 million children under the age of five may have suffered from wasting or acute malnutrition in 2020, resulting in nearly 54 million children being wasted, a 14% rise that could translate into More than 10,000 additional child deaths per month – mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. With a 40 percent decrease in nutrition services for children and women, many other nutrition outcomes could worsen.
Politicians and unelected officials have experimented with closures, social distancing, and study delays without considering the long-term consequences. So far, according to the above research, the effect on younger generations has been horrific. We’ve mentioned before – this has produced slow-moving mental health Explosion.
