Amid COVID-19 outbreak, Greenland bans alcohol sales to prevent child abuse

The sale of alcohol has been banned in the Greenland’s capital city of Nuuk in an attempt to reduce violence against children during the period of confinement caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. ’At the heart of my decision is the protection of children; they have to have a safe home’, said PM Kim Kielsen. Reports suggest one in three people living in Greenland suffered sexual abuse during childhood.
