For a few, comfort comes in other forms. As the new coronavirus began to circulate last year, Luciana Benetti found her plans for a big traditional 15th birthday party scrapped. In its place, her parents gave her a pig. Chanchi turned out to be a loyal and loving companion — racing to her side when she fainted. “One day my legs gave way and he came running. He grabbed my hair and raised my head,” she said. She had been taking online classes at home, unable to see friends or schoolmates. “I didn’t feel well. I was dizzy because I couldn’t leave.” Without Chanchi, “I wouldn’t be me,” said Benetti, who often sleeps alongside the 20-kilo (45-pound) Juliana pig that greets her with a squeal of delight when she arrives at her house.
