Dr Scott said worldwide restrictions to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus precipitated a growing and long-term educational and health crisis among children and adolescents.

“This problem is not just going to go away on its own,” Dr Scott said. “There is a critical and urgent need for targeted action,” Dr Scott said.

“Globally, falling physical activity levels, increasing sedentary behaviours and too much screen time were significant issues before the global outbreak of coronavirus. The pandemic has exacerbated these existing physical and mental health risks.”

Dr Scott said that as children gradually returned to the classroom after the extended periods at home, it became clear that many were not only behind educationally but also had higher levels of distress, poor sleeping and eating habits, and had done little exercise for months on end.
