World: COVID-19 emergency response - Situation report #14 - 16 July 2020

Country: World Source: World Vision Key Concerns We urge the world to stand together with the most vulnerable children to fight COVID-19, especially refugees and the internally displaced. Devastating aftershocks of the crisis are putting at least 30 million children s lives at risk with 85 million more children likely to experience violence. Millions of parents and caregivers have lost incomes and jobs due to COVID-19, forcing them to expose their children to harmful and dangerous circumstances, such as begging or child marriage. We urgently need to address both the direct health impacts of the virus and the secondary shocks brought about by viral containment measures. Joining hands with faith leaders is critical to strengthen preparedness, behaviour change and protecting children. World Vision regularly monitors the global trajectory and impact of COVID-19 to inform how it will respond and advocate for the most vulnerable children and families. World Vision looks at the latest statical data about the pandemic, including case growth and death rates, among other critical contextual factors. Currently World Vision is particularly concerned about: Angola, Bolivia, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Iraq, Kosovo, Mexico and Romania. These countries may require additional support in order to limit the primary and secondary impacts of COVID-19
