Coronavirus: School closure


UNICEF:
More than 1.57 billion children have been affected by COVID-19 related school closures. We don’t yet have enough evidence to measure the impact on disease transmission rates. But the risks to children’s learning, safety and wellbeing are well documented. The longer children are out of school, the greater the risk of sexual violence, child labour and child marriage.
As schools make plans to reopen after COVID-19 shutdowns, it can’t be business as usual. We’re working with governments and partners to invest in better schools – and reach the most vulnerable children. This includes making clean water, nutritious meals, psychosocial support and access to the Internet available for every child.
