PISCO, PeruâSeveral nights a week, 4-year-old Sofia Felices jolts awake in tears and calls out for her mother, who used to cuddle her youngest daughter in bed. Sofiaâs mom died from the coronavirus in April, so that job now falls to the girlâs great-aunt, Janette Navarro.
âShe cries and she cries,â said Ms. Navarro, who has three children of her own but has become caregiver to her nieceâs five children in this coastal fishing city. âShe screams with her eyes closed, âI want my mommy. I want my mommy.â â
