UNICEF Reports Over 20k Babies Born In Nigeria On New Year's Day

Reports from UNICEF says approximately 20,210 babies were born on New Year's day in Nigeria.

UNICEF also said nearly 386,000 babies would be born worldwide on New Year’s Day, representing some 90 per cent in less developed regions.

Kiribati’s Christmas Island in the Pacific would most likely welcome 2018’s first baby while the U.S., its last the agency reported.

Over half these births are estimated to take place in nine countries globally.

They include: India, 69,070; China, 44,760; Nigeria, 20,210; Pakistan,14,910; Indonesia, 13,370; United States, 11,280; Democratic Republic of Congo, 9,400; Ethiopia, 9,020; and Bangladesh, 8,370.

Stefan Peterson, UNICEF’s Chief of Health, said on Monday that the UN children’s agency was challenging nations around the world to make sure more newborns survive their first days of life as many dont make it past the first day.

"This New Year, UNICEF’s resolution is to help give every child more than an hour, more than a day, more than a month – more than survival,” Peterson said.
