Will there be a ‘Covid Generation’?

In this episode of the Debrief, with new strains of the coronavirus now found in Poland and the pandemic seemingly far from over despite available vaccines, we ask the question – how are children affected by the pandemic?

It’s been a week marked by International Holocaust Remembrance day and the Polish government’s announcement that it has placed an order for 87 million Covid-19 vaccines from as many as five different companies.

And while we’re on the subject of the ongoing pandemic, in this week’s interview, host John Beauchamp is joined by Dr Maria Reimann from the Interdisciplinary Team on Childhood Research at Warsaw University about how the pandemic has affected kids in Poland and across the world.
