The COVID-19 pandemic has already
wrecked greater havoc in poor neighborhoods of color, where pre-existing
conditions exacerbate the disease’s spread. Crowded housing and
homelessness, less access to health care and insurance, and underlying
health conditions are all factors that worsen the chances of remaining
healthy.Workers desperate for income continue to work without sufficient
protective measures, moving in and out of these neighborhoods, putting
themselves and their families at risk. During periods of greater
disruption, tensions are heightened and violence more prevalent. Already
some experts are warning of an onslaught of child maltreatment cases,
citing earlier examples of spikes in foster care during drug epidemics
and economic recessions. Instead of panicking, thinking creatively and
thoughtfully about appropriate responses and using the information and
resources we already have may help to diminish such fears and improve
the safeguards that are needed to protect the integrity of families and
keep children safe.

In developing countries, overweight among children becomes an alarming problem and a health concern. Obesity is a factor in disease severity of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) having the greatest impact on patients. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of overweight in some of the Egyptian governmental primary school children, its nutritional and socioeconomic determinants. Special focus was directed to identify the current dietary practices including risky nutritional habits of overweight children as a weak point leading to increasing their vulnerability to catching COVID-19 infection.
