There is real and present danger that the 2020s will become a ‘lost decade’ with unprecedented reversals in development progress. And while children seem to be less susceptible to the direct consequences of the coronavirus (although emerging evidence suggests COVID-19 poses a health threat to them as well), they are becoming the biggest victims of its social and economic impacts.
In our live tracker we are summarising what we believe to be the pandemic’s most severe consequences on children living in low- and middle-income countries. We will regularly update the tracker whenever new evidence emerges.
We have migrated our live tracker to a new platform, which allows us to organise the ever-growing evidence more clearly. You can find the new version of the tracker here.
