Child abuse went under the radar during the pandemic
Several studies show that fewer cases of child abuse were reported during the pandemic. 15 per cent of young people in Norway were hurt or abused when schools were closed during the lockdown.
A new study shows that children who are less physically active have poorer cardiac function than their more active peers. "This study is a piece of a larger puzzle, where the big picture shows that children should be less sedentary and be more active", says one of the researchers.
