The Corona epidemic has affected the lives of 7 million children in Afghanistan. A group called ‘Save the Children’ has said on Monday that the Corona epidemic has pushed the country’s 7 million students to poverty and shunned them from their basic rights. Save the Children Group spokeswoman Maryam Atai said, “More than seven million children have died of starvation in the country due to the outbreak of COVID-19. It has also impacted the education of children.”
More than 15 thousand people have been affected by Coronavirus in the country so far. According to Johns Hopkins University, a total of 15,750 people have become victims of this virus in Afghanistan so far. At the same time, 265 patients have been killed due to this virus.
Citing UNICEF figures, Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, Ghulam Hazar Jalani said that around six million children are currently in danger.
