A new model shows how long we will feel the impact of COVID-19.
Researchers say nearly 40,000 children under the age of 18 have lost a parent to the virus.
The data is based on statistical modeling and not a survey or administrative data.
It also shows Black children have been disproportionately affected as they make up 14% of children in the U.S. with 20% losing a parent to COVID.
The report was published in the Jama Pediatrics Medical Journal.
