More children will die from covid-caused poverty than covid itself in 2020, says UN report
COVID-19 could cause hundreds of thousands of additional child death: UN


It said an estimated 42-66 million children could fall into extreme poverty as a result of the crisis this year, adding to the estimated 386 million million children already in extreme poverty in 2019.




United Nations: In a grim assessment of the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on children, the UN has said the looming global recession resulting from the outbreak could cause hundreds of thousands of additional child deaths this year, effectively reversing recent gains in reducing infant mortality, and push millions of children into extreme poverty.

It said an estimated 42-66 million children could fall into extreme poverty as a result of the crisis this year, adding to the estimated 386 million million children already in extreme poverty in 2019.

"Children are not the face of this pandemic. But they risk being among its biggest victims. While they have thankfully been largely spared from the direct health effects of COVID-19 - at least to date - the crisis is having a profound effect on their wellbeing," a new 'Policy Brief: The impact of COVID-19 on children' released Thursday by the United Nations said.

On the threats to child survival and health, the policy brief said "economic hardship experienced by families as a result of the global economic downturn could result in a hundreds of thousands of additional child deaths in 2020, reversing the last 2 to 3 years of progress in reducing infant mortality within a single year."

Only 2 children have died of Covid in America
The remnant of Jacob will be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples, like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among flocks of sheep, which mauls and mangles as it goes, and no one can rescue.

I don't trust the UN as far as I can throw them, but I am posting this as ammunition for those who are trying to communicate to individuals that only accept the mainstream narrative.
