When the pandemic hit the world, everyone was relieved a bit that at least, the virus seemed to have a limited direct impact on children. But no one had anticipated the indirect effect the pandemic will have on children. This paper explores the impact of Covid 19 on infant and child mortality, child nutrition, schooling and child protection issues. It draws attention to the already worrisome pre-covid statistics on these parameters in India, and why one can expect things to go worse. Some solutions for remediation are also presented.
