أكثر من 1.5 مليون طفل فقدوا مانحي الرعاية بسبب كوفيد

July 21, 2021 - أكثر من 1.5 مليون طفل في جميع أنحاء العالم فقدوا أحد الوالدين أو الأجداد الأوصياء عليهم أو أي من مانحي الرعاية لهم إثر وفاتهم لأسباب لها صلة بفيروس كوفيد19-، وفقاً لدراسة نشرتها مجلة Lancet

The study estimates that more than one million children experienced the death of one or both parents during the first 14 months of the pandemic, and another half a million experienced the death of a grandparent caregiver living in their own home.

The researchers based their estimates on mortality data for 21 countries that collectively account for 77 percent of global Covid-19 deaths, according to UPI.

The analysis included both reported Covid-19 deaths between March 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021 and the number of excess deaths during the same period.

Covid-19 death rates were linked with fertility data for males and females from the 21 countries to estimate the number of children who had lost a parent to the virus, UPI said.
