Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) information centre

The latest COVID-19 news and resources, as well as tips to protect you and your family.


The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the lives of children and their families as health systems buckle, borders close, and schools and businesses shutter. 

As the coronavirus has spread, so has misinformation – fueling discrimination and stigma. UNICEF is working with health experts to promote facts over fear, bringing trustworthy guidance to parents, caregivers and educators. We’re on the ground in more than 190 countries, partnering with front-line responders and providing them with the information and resources they need to keep children healthy and learning, protected from sickness and violence. We will get through this together, for every child.
