Are We Heading Towards A Lost Generation?

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in school closures around the world, with many students left in the lurch, uncertain of whether they will be able to continue their studies or get into university this year. Yet, the impact of the coronavirus on our children may be greater than we suspect. In conjunction with Universal Children's Day, we look into the growing consequences that the pandemic is having on our children with Dr Rashed Mustafa Sarwar, Representative for UNICEF in Malaysia.
