World’s highest per capital COVID deaths – Peruvians families left in limbo

PERU (STL.News) At least 10,000 children in Peru have lost one or both of their parents to coronavirus – a phenomenon described as the “hidden pandemic.”

More than 200,000 Peruvians have died from COVID-19, making it the country with the world’s highest per-capita death toll.

That has been blamed on the crumbling healthcare system and poverty, but it has also left a generation of “COVID-19 orphans” behind.
