Hinandugan ng cake ang bagong silang na sanggol na si Vinice Mabansag sa Tondo, Maynila bilang ika-8 bilyong sanggol na ipinanganak sa Pilipinas, ayon sa Facebook page ng Commission on Population and Development NCR.
“The world welcomes Vinice Mabansag of Delpan,Tondo as the 8th billion baby from the Philippines. #8Billionthbaby,” ayon sa caption ng Facebook post kalakip ang mga litrato ng ina at bagong silang na sanggol.
“Despite expected increase in the fertility of Filipino women because of impeded access to family planning services during lockdowns and quarantine protocols, as well as the world’s total headcount projected to hit 8 billion on November 15, the Philippines was able to register recent population statistics unheard of in years, with fertility numbers plummeting to less than two offspring per woman,” saad sa isang Facebook post ng CPD-NCR.
“This was revealed during the Philippine Statistics Authority’s (PSA) National Health Demographic Survey (NDHS) 2022 Dissemination Forum last Friday, November 11, where it was announced that the total fertility rate (TFR) of Filipino women 15- to 49-years old now stands at 1.9 children, from 2.7 children in 2017.”
Marami naman sa mga netizen ang nagpaabot ng pagbati para sa ina at sanggol.
Welcome to the world, Baby Vinice!
