However, because vaccines are not available to children under 15, they will be barred from attending tomorrow’s Republic Day parade.

School Closures Due To Covid Affected Over 600 Million Students Globally, Says UNICEF
According to UNICEF, school closures due to Covid affected over 600 million students worldwide.
According to the UN Children’s Agency, more than 616 million students are still affected by full or partial school closures.
In many countries, in addition to depriving millions of children of the opportunity to learn basic skills, these disruptions have harmed students’ mental health, increased their vulnerability to abuse, and prevented many from having access to “a regular source of nutrition,” according to UNICEF.
“Quite simply, we are facing a nearly insurmountable scale of loss to children’s schooling,” said UNICEF Chief of Education Robert Jenkins in a statement issued nearly two years into the pandemic.
“Simply reopening schools is not enough,” he added, urging “intensive support to recover lost education.”
According to UNICEF, “learning losses due to school closures have left up to 70% of 10-year-olds unable to read or understand a simple text, up from 53% pre-pandemic” in low and middle-income countries.
According to the UN, children in Ethiopia learned only “between 30 and 40% of the math they would have learned if it had been a normal school year” in primary school.
Rich countries are far from immune. According to UNICEF, learning losses have been observed in several states in the United States, including Texas, California, and Maryland.
School dropouts are also an issue: between March 2020 and July 2021, between 400,000 and 500,000 South African students “reportedly dropped out of school altogether.”
Finally, in addition to rising levels of anxiety and depression among children and young people linked to the pandemic, school closures meant that over 370 million children worldwide did not receive school meals, “losing what the only reliable source of food and daily nutrition is.”
