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

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.
