A UNESCO report shows that more than one billion children are at home and 60 million teachers are not in the classroom following the closure of educational institutions worldwide, in wake of the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus.

He said this is indeed a very good opportunity for families to bond, but was quick to add that there is the need to adhere to social distancing to keep families safe amidst Covid-19.
