One in three schoolchildren across the world have been unable to access remote learning during novel coronavirus school closures, the U.N. children's agency has said, warning of a "global education emergency". Learners in Africa are impacted the most, with almost half unable to access remote education, compared to 38% in South Asia and 34% in eastern Europe and Central Asia according to a report by UNICEF.
