Expert lists numerous implication of lockdown to malnourished children – NaijaAgroNet

The Lagos State Coordinator of the Civil Society Scaling Up Nutrition in Nigeria (CS-SUNN), Dr. Mrs Modupe Akinyinka, has said there are numerous implication of the current lockdown in the state for malnourished children, reports NaijaAgroNet.

Speaking to NaijaAgroNet exclusively, Dr. Akinyinka said that the implications of the lockdown for malnourished children are numerous, and gave some prescriptions on way out of the wood.

For those already on treatment, she told, NaijaAgroNet that “it may be interrupted as all attention is focused on curbing COVID-19 spread.”

Akinyinka who doubles as Lecturer and Consultant Community Health Physician, Lagos State University College of Medicine (LASUCOM) also said that if eventually malnourished children contract the Coronavirus or COVID-19 disease, “they will be less able to fight it and are more likely to die.”

Equally for those not on treatment, Dr. Akinyinka said, the situation could be even worse as “they may now be faced with starvation from reduced” with no income from parents and caregivers due to the lockdown.

“And are more prone to dying from the disease if they contract it,” she lamented.

On the way forward, Dr. Akinyinka advised parents and caregivers to ensure they take all the prescribed precautions including social distancing, frequent hand washing, not touching the face, as well as making certain they get food supplies that include different types of food that are usually not too expensive.

These, she outlined to include crayfish, beans, soya, eggs, fruits in season and vegetables in addition to “our staples like rice, yam, sweet potatoes, etc. And if they can afford it, meat and fish are excellent too.”

These, she highlighted should be purchased from nearby markets and the visit should be planned to reduce outings in order to stay home and safe from the pandemic.
