There’s troubling news emerging in the search for the missing migrant children the American government has yet to fully locate or their parents. According to reports —- at least 1k of those children in custody of the government have all tested positive for COVID-19. They have no parents or registered family members in the states because the U.S government cannot locate them.
According to CNN, more than 1,061 children have all tested positive for the virus while in care of the government. It comes amid renewed criticism at the hands of the government and its failure to address the fact that they have no known parents because they were separated at the border.
None of the reported children have required hospitalisation as far as it is known, however, at least 188 remain in medical isolation.
