  The COVID-19 pandemic is upending many aspects of children’s lives around the world, putting them at risk of violence. With the spread of the disease and the associated economic and social effects, the violence may be further deepened. Similarly, the increase in children’s computer usage time with distance education may lead to other forms of violence such as cyberbullying. In a study comparing child abuse and neglect before and after the closure of schools due to the pandemic, significant increases were found in the incidence of these cases, making a unique contribution to the existing literatüre.
