On the first day, 67385 children were born in India, 46299 China, 26000 in Nigeria, 13020 Indonesia, 10452 United States, 10247 Congo and 8493 children were born in Ethiopia.
“At the beginning of the year, we have to think about the future of our next generation, and their potential for life,” Executive Director UNICEF Henrietta Fore said in a statement.
The report says that in 2018, more than 2.5 million newborns died before reaching the age of one month, most of them died due to premature birth and delivery problems.
The World Organization believes that by focusing on human health globally, we can save more newborns.
