Study finds over 43,000 US children have lost a parent to covid-19 pandemic

As many as 43,000 US children 17 or younger have already lost at least one of their parents to the deadly Covid-19 pandemic, according to a newly released study.

As of February, the report in the Journal of the American Medical Association said the toll on kids from the virus has been significant and has “disproportionally affected” black children.

“The number of children experiencing a parent dying of Covid-19 is staggering, with an estimated 37,300 to 43,000 already affected,” the study, published in JAMA last week, said.

“For comparison, the attacks on September 11, 2001, left 30,000 children without a parent,” it said. “The burden will grow heavier as the death toll continues to mount.”

The study, led by Stony Brook University researcher Rachel Kidman, found that black children, who make up 14 percent of the US population, account for 20 percent of children who have lost a parent.

“Sweeping national reforms are needed to address health, educational, and economic fallout affecting children,” the report argued. “Parentally bereaved children will also need targeted support to help with grief, particularly during this period of heightened social isolation.”

There have been more than 31 million confirmed cases of the virus the US — and nearly 562,000 dead from the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University.

  2. 除了写论文,每个外国学生必须做的事情之一 是Speech代写 。留学生的日常任务是,当投稿时间到了,征文是日常必需品就不用说了。网上有那么多资料教您怎么写论文,但是怎么写演讲稿?挺多同学还是需要提醒的。看着一份空白的幻灯片,我不知道该怎么开始您的演讲。现在让我们来分析一下如何写一篇演讲稿,以及如何很好地表达它。在开始写演讲稿之前,请花几分钟时间思考以下问题: 这是什么言论?常长看见的类型包括信息型、说服型和唤起型。您的观众是谁?老师和学生吗?他们对这门学科已经了解多少?他们认为什么可能是真的?他们想要什么?他们在担心什么?您对这个话题的总体看法是什么?记住中性演讲是无聊的演讲!
