thoughts. for months the coronavirus crisis has been one of the lenses and intensive care ward now experts say without extra funding and protection it may give way to a crisis that is longer lasting and harder to heal. we go through this with james elder who's a reasonable communications chief with u.n. children's fund unicef in east and southern africa and he joins us from nairobi welcome to the w. with schools and well fast centers closed and welfare budgets squeezed how sure how do child protection agencies go about detecting this increased abuse well the 2 main ways are a door to door there is a great community facility that's already set up and as much as there are
8:05 pm
a lot downs and curfews a lot of places have that ability and then there are phone lines their phone lines are put on 40 days literally being really off the hook so there is still means but it's about detecting and then what we're seeing is those big spikes addressing it is only going to come when you reduce the stresses when mums and dads can go back to work because they don't have a reservoir savings and when kids can go back to school as you as you were listening there previously those are the things otherwise we are looking at a much longer problem and how that night a much bigger effect on kids can be infected by this pandemic and you're seeing this across the world. absolutely i mean this is the region of course on responsible eastern and southern africa and we've seen big spikes the spikes in anxiety big spikes in violence you know those things that we know about children with spouses being trapped with their abuses but it's certainly not unique to this
8:06 pm
part of the world at all i've seen you know we've seen reports in rich countries where we've got similar things obviously those people in the poorest communities where families are trapped 6 or 7 people in the size of what you have us may consider they keep gen in those stresses and anxieties get worse and wallace doesn't mean is ever an excuse for child abuse it's just that these are some of the causes that we say particularly with hundreds of millions of kids out of school and so where do you see this child protection being done while in these lockdown times well a few places where i am kenyan is doing well south africa is not bad one of the big things that you need as a response you know you of course you have the help lines and you have people that can can detect it but as we've seen in rich countries getting money to the poorest people getting money in the hand has proven over the last decade or more to be hugely successful people will take that money and will amplify it they will you
8:07 pm
know keep they will ensure that there's more food on the table they'll find more resources to employ someone else will keep that business elegant so getting money to the poorest people but countries like south africa and kenya have been able to do it they're a little bit wealthier relative to other it's other countries can't and that's why when you've got things like the g 20 is looking at a 5 trillion dollars package for its countries as little as 5 percent of that would be probably one of the most impactful positive things that could be done in the african continent well certainly in my life talk good talking to thank you for joining us and james alba from unicef. it's been touted by u.s. president donald trump on brazil's jr balsa naro as a cure for coverage 19 but evidence has been mounting that the anti-malarial drug hydroxy chloroquine isn't effective and may even be dangerous the world health organization has poor states trial of the drug it cited
