A perfect storm - Aftershocks

World Vision – December 2020

COVID-19 poses a grave threat to the world’s children. As we showed in our previous report, while the mortality rate for healthy children infected by the virus has been lower than for adults and those with pre-existing conditions, 30 million are still at risk of illness and death. It is the indirect effects and impacts of this disease that pose a clear and present danger to children, particularly the most vulnerable.
