A new report from the Associated Press is shedding more light on the various negative healthcare effects of the CoVID-19 shutdown; showing children are losing “basic skills” during the lockdown and school closures.

“Some young children have forgotten how to eat with a knife and fork and others have regressed back into diapers as the coronavirus pandemic and related school closures take a toll on young peoples’ learning, the U.K. education watchdog said Tuesday,” reports the AP.

“The Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills., known as Ofsted, published five reports based on findings from more than 900 visits to education and social care providers across England since September. Some of the children most affected by the disruption of the pandemic were those in their earliest years of education with working parents, who ‘experienced the double whammy of less time with parents and less time with other children,’ chief inspector Amanda Spielman said,” adds the AP.
