Japan is expecting to see a record low number of newborns in 2020, government sources said.
The figure is projected to fall to about 845,000 births, which is about 20,000 fewer newborns than the previous record, which occurred in 2019. The Covid-19 pandemic has been blamed for smaller numbers of marriages and pregnancies. - South China Morning Post
