New publication in The Lancet Public Health

Together with my colleague Zach Parolin (Columbia University, US), I wrote a commentary in The Lancet Public Health on the social impact of the coronavirus pandemic. In particular the school closures are likely to hit poor children the hardest. We argue that urgent action is needed to avoid the current health crisis becoming a full-blown social crisis. The piece can be read open access here: COVID-19, school closures, and child poverty: a social crisis in the making.
