A year without swimming lessons: when children are left out on dry land
Children who are not allowed to do anything become adults who are not able to do anything. The modified Hänschen-und-Hans wisdom will be well underpinned in the next few years due to the lockdown. The fact that an entire year of children did not learn to swim could have a particularly dramatic effect. The number of serious accidents, the experts agree, can only increase. This is also pointed out by the Austrian swimming schools, which require permission for swimming lessons and support for the pools for safe operation.
