Geneva: The United Nations has said in a report that one in three people in the world has never been online. Thus, a total of 2.90 billion people are deprived of it, which is 37% of the global population. This was revealed by the Telecommunication Bureau, a subsidiary of the United Nations.
The United Nations says the number of Internet users has increased by 17% since 2019 and that a total of 490 million people now have access to online. This is because, in the wake of the Corona epidemic, people connected to the Internet and increased their knowledge.
The United Nations has welcomed the increase. But the same epidemic has also exposed the global Internet gulf, or digital divide. Children and teachers are particularly affected. Due to the lockdown, the situation became more difficult and people’s worries increased.
Surprisingly, even in the most backward and poorest parts of the United States, millions of children and their teachers were away from hardware and the Internet. In this way, millions of children have suffered tremendous educational losses and more is happening.
