New study finds that in the United States alone, "37,300 children aged 0 to 17 years [have] lost at least 1 parent due to #COVID19" as of February 2021. The authors suggest that accounting for excess mortality may shift this tally up to as many as 43,000: jamanetwork.com/journals/jamap…

One impact of COVID-19 on US kids: "mass parental bereavement" An estimated 37,300-43,000 children lost a parent to COVID-19. Black children are disproportionately affected. Numbers will rise as death toll rises. About 2 million kids lost a grandparent. ja.ma/3wtJM6N

Estimate that 43 000 children have lost a parent; disproportionately Black. If US had not abandoned their official natural herd immunity strategy that would have resulted in 116, 900 parentally bereaved children. Wonder how many were orphaned by politics? jamanetwork.com/journals/jamap…

A new @JAMAPediatrics study devastatingly reports that an estimated 37,300 to 43,000 US children have lost a parent to #COVID19. This represents a 17.5% to 20.2% annual increase in parental bereavement, and black children were disproportionately affected. jamanetwork.com/journals/jamap…
