According to the Red Cross, a year of pandemic, lockdowns, and infection control measures has led to the largest humanitarian setback in Norway since World War II.
The organization points out that there have been many individual reports but that no one has yet assessed the consequences as a whole.
The Red Cross has now looked at the secondary effects of the pandemic, such as lockdowns and major changes in society.
“There is no doubt that this is now one of the biggest humanitarian challenges we as a society have faced in our generation.
“This report emphatically states that the pandemic has exacerbated differences and laid the foundation for more lasting inequalities and exclusion in our society,” Secretary-General Bernt Apeland noted.
