PRIVATIC, Dec 22 - The world's children are carrying the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic, with dramatic increase in violence, abuse, child labour, lost schooling and malnutrition - two Vatican studies revealed yesterday.

The study was funded by the Vatican's development agency and Pontifical Academy for Life, which supported research and scientific research.

"The effects of violence, abuse and exploitation of children have sharply increased since the pandemic began. Poor communities need to bear these adversities disproportionately," said one study.

They said that estimated five million children's birthplace has become a parent, unidentified grandparent or non-sector of the pandemic. That meant that one child would lose a parent, or even an assistant caregiver every 12 seconds.

The pandemic left a encouraging trend of poverty reduction: plunging 150 million children into poverty and increasing child labour to 160 million.

A rising hunger is leading to 6 to 7 million new cases of acute malnutrition in children under five, bringing about about 10,000 deaths in a month in 2020. 80 percent of them in South Asia or Subsaharan Africa.

Child malnutrition was also deteriorated from the loss of about 39 billion school meals, which essentially is just one good meal that they receive.

The number of students left school in the south is huge, and one estimated estimated 10 million youngsters would never return to school.

The poor of the families struggled to get money out of their debts.

In the study, schools should be run free.
