📍ORPHANED—The number of U.S. children orphaned during the #COVID19 pandemic likely larger than previously estimated—120,000—the toll has been far greater among Black & Hispanic Americans. And this only included up to Feb 2021– more during #DeltaVariant.

2) more than 120,000 U.S. children lost a parent or grandparent who was a primary provider of financial support & care, the study found. Another 22,000 children experienced the death of a secondary caregiver —eg a grandparent who provided housing but not other basic needs.

@DrEricDing I was just discussing this with someone this evening … There are so many children that will need help…they cannot be forgotten.

@DrEricDing If there was ever a time we desperately needed a child tax credit, universal pre k and paid family leave is now. I hate Manchin and Sinema for taking money to stop that from happening.

@DrEricDing Witnessing this much trauma is going to result in multiple generations of dysfunctional adults. It will take over 80 years to undo the damage the Trump administration caused. It didn’t have to be this way.
