7 million children around the world may never return to school because of the coronavirus pandemic, a UK charity has warned.
Save the Children said the economic impact of the crisis on countries around the world could force children to enter the workplace early.
Girls "are likely to be much worse affected than boys", the charity said, with many facing the threat of early marriage.
The areas most at risk of seeing children drop out of education include countries in West and Central Africa, as well as Yemen and Afghanistan.
"This is an unprecedented education emergency and governments must urgently invest in learning,” Save the Children's president and CEO Janti Soeripto said.
