Kurangnya penanganan kesehatan, hilangnya pendapatan, hingga pasokan makanan yang terganggu akibat Corona dapat menyebabkan meningkatnya masalah gizi pada anak.

JAMBON, PONOROGO, INDONESIA - MARCH 25:  Jamila, 13, who suffers from Down syndrome, lies on a floor mat inside a house at Sidowayah Village in Jambon subdistrict on March 25, 2016 in Ponorogo district, Indonesia. Jamila has been paralyzed and mute since she was a baby and is now being cared for by grandmother of her parents as his mother worked as a migrant worker in Malaysia. More than 400 people suffer from psychosocial disabilities in Ponorogo, East Java, where villagers and government officials blamed incest, malnutrition and iodine deficiency as the cause for the illness. In villages such as Sidoharjo, Karangpatihan and Krebet, both adolescents and adults suffer from severe physical retardation, also known as Perwakilan UNICEF, Debora Comini mengatakan COVID-19 menghantam keluarga yang paling rentan. Menurutnya jika tidak segera meningkatkan layanan pencegahan dan perawatan untuk anak-anak yang mengalami masalah gizi, hal tersebut berisiko peningkatan penyakit dan kematian anak.
