Everything has changed and even more tragically, it has claimed many lives.
With death all around, bereaved families search for solace amid the pandemic as coronavirus rages on.
Throughout the pandemic, the public has been constantly updated on the number of people who died from COVID-19.
Far less noticeable – but just as devastating – are the experience of those left behind, including the young ones.
Even if children are less vulnerable to the coronavirus, they don’t suffer any less from the loss it causes.
Witnessing Parent’s Final Days
Recently, a video uploaded on TikTok, in which a child lost one of the most important adults in her life – tugged at the heart of netizens.
The video was posted on multiple platforms, including on Instagram.
In the video, a child fully clothed in a PPE suit was seen crying when he found his mother could not be saved after being infected with Covid-19.
The child repeatedly called out to the mother, with no response.
As the child keep calling out, the child suddenly almost collapsed but was helped just in time by an adult.
Many netizens empathize with the parting as some of them have also gone through the same situation.
However, they can only hope that the child will find healing, as having to go through life without a mother can be tremendously destabilizing.
After all, parents are the one whom a child look up to provide a sense of security and safety and meet basic needs.
