STRASBOURG, November 19 (FENA) - The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened and widened pre-existing inequalities that undermine children’s ability to enjoy their human rights, including in terms of health, safety, education, and living conditions. There is a clear risk that COVID-19 will have adverse long-term effects on children and the fulfillment of their rights, said the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, Dunja Mijatović today, ahead of the 31st anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
