80 million children at risk of measles, polio as vaccines disrupted, warns UN

UN agencies and the GAVI vaccine alliance have warned that massive disruptions to global immunization programs from the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to affect 80 million children in at least 68 countries. The disruption puts the kids at risk of diphtheria, measles and polio, owing to travel restrictions, delivery delays, and parents’ fear of leaving home.
