Fertility rates drop to the lowest level in the last 42 years in the USA – health news


In the US, according to the report published by the National Center for Health Statistics, it was noted that there were 3.6 million births in the country, according to 2020 provisional data.

The report pointed out that the overall fertility rate in the country fell to 55.8 per 1,000 women between the ages of 15-44.

In the report, which pointed out that there has been a decrease of approximately 2 percent in birth rates every year in the last 6 years, it was stated that the rates are expected to continue low in 2021 due to the new type of corona virus (Covid-19) epidemic.

Experts found that, in addition to the fear of Covid-19-related unemployment, controls during pregnancy and the fear of getting the virus during the hospital process may also be effective in the decline in birth rates.
