Vision Egypt News: - The United Nations Children's Fund "UNICEF" issued a report entitled "Avoiding the loss of the Covid generation", in which it warned of the negative repercussions and harms on children as the Corona pandemic enters its second year.

The UNICEF report pointed out that Coronavirus infection among children is increasing in addition to the long-term impact on the education, nutrition and well-being of an entire generation of children and youth that could change their lives.

"The disruption of basic services and high poverty rates pose the greatest threat to children. The longer the crisis lasts, the greater its impact on children's education, health, nutrition and well-being," said Henrietta Fore, Executive Director of UNICEF. The future of an entire generation is at risk.

According to the UNICEF report, a third of the 140 countries covered by the analysis witnessed a decrease of at least 10% in health services coverage, such as routine immunization, outpatient treatment of childhood infectious diseases, and maternal health services, due to fear of transmission.

The report called for avoiding the loss of an entire generation. COVID-19 threatens to cause irreversible damage to children's education, nutrition and well-being.
