The impact of Covid-19 on education

World Bank mapped school closure around the world because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Per 27 April 2020, only students in 7 countries can go to school as the school remain fully open.

Before the outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic, the world was already dealing with a learning crisis, With the spread of the coronavirus, the education system is facing a new crisis, as more than 160 countries (as of March 24) mandate some form of school closures impacting at least 1.5 billion children and youth.  Extended school closures may cause not only loss of learning in the short term, but also further loss in human capital and diminished economic opportunities over the long term.
