The United Nations Children’s Fund has come out to say that recovering from the effect of COVID-19 on child poverty would take seven to eight years.

The UNICEF Executive Director, Henrietta Fore recently revealed this during her speech, in commemoration of the agency’s 75th anniversary.

According to him, the pandemic has really upended families, communities, and countries all over the world, and it is best to remain cautious while living our daily lives.

UNICEF added that a staggering 100 million more children have been plunged into poverty since coronavirus struck.

His words, “But in the last 20 months, the pandemic has upended families, communities, and countries the world over. COVID-19 constitutes the most significant global crisis for children in our 75-year history.”

“It is already rolling back virtually every measure of progress for children. A staggering 100 million more children have been plunged into poverty.”

“Even in a best-case scenario, it will take seven to eight years to recover and return to pre-COVID child poverty levels.”
