Children & Malnutrition Related To The coronavirus

Published on: 15 December, 2020

A Save the Children Report warns that malnutrition-related to the coronavirus pandemic could kill an average of 153 children a day over the next two years.

The report says the impact of Covid-19 has led to an increase in poverty, a loss of livelihoods, and less access to health and nutrition services, pushing up rates of hunger and malnutrition.

It also says that the pandemic could reverse years of progress made in the battle against malnutrition, with children in Asia and sub-Sahara Africa being hardest hit – especially those in poorer households or in crises and conflict zones.
