The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) says the corona virus will cause an estimated 116 million babies worldwide, a quarter of which will be born in 29 million South Asian countries.

This estimate is based on the next 40 weeks (nine months) since the onset of the epidemic.

The United Nations says India tops the list of South Asian countries with 20 million births, followed by Pakistan (5 million), Bangladesh and 3.4 million. Afghanistan will be fourth with one million children.

The United Nations says health care is under severe pressure globally due to the Corona Emergency, which raises serious concerns about maternal and child health.

This will mean that newborns and their mothers in South Asian countries will face harsh ground realities, including lockdowns, curfews and lack of medical and other facilities, and midwives, the agency added. Lack of skilled health workers.

The United Nations has called on the governments of South Asian countries to take appropriate action in their respective countries in light of these figures.
