Baby boom in the Philippines due to COVID-19 lockdown

封城難避孕 菲律賓爆新冠嬰兒潮

 

在2021年的前六個月內,在冠狀病毒病(COVID-19)大流行期間出生的嬰兒數量預計將會激增,根據人口與發展委員會(Popcom)負責人的說法,

According to manilastandard.net, the increase in babies born during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is expected to boom within the first six months of 2021, the chief of the Commission on Population and Development (Popcom) has said.

他說,封城下的懷孕將會增加一月至九月之間的出生人數。

He said lockdown pregnancies would raise the number of births between January and September.

該委員會表示,預計人口將增加到1.111億,因為疫情導致計劃外懷孕的人數增加,這將影響“ 1歲以下年齡段的人數”。

The commission said the population was expected to swell at 111.1 million, which would affect the “under 1 age group” due to increased unplanned pregnancies brought about by the pandemic.

然而,隨著疫苗討論的繼續以及封城限制的放鬆,人們可以尋求計劃生育服務,佩雷斯表示,他們預計計劃外懷孕的數量將在2021年回復正常。

However, as vaccine talks continue, and lockdown restrictions ease enough for people to seek family planning services, Perez said they expected the number of unplanned pregnancies to “normalize” within 2021.

POPCOM「相信」這個現象將在今年第二季度或第三季度恢復正常。 否則,他們會提出一個“一年現象”計畫,並將開始採取紓緩措施。

POPCOM is “hopeful” that the situation will normalize by the second or third quarter of the year. Otherwise, they project a “year-long phenomenon” and will start doing mitigating measures.
