However, this was the highest May figure since records have been kept.

The extended COVID-19 pandemic, which was recently sparked by a sub-variant, was to blame for the deaths that were reported.

Additionally, there were 20,007 newborns in May, which is a decrease of 8.8% from a year earlier.

Since December 2015, there have been fewer births due to the growing tendency of postponed marriage as well as the decreased number of women who are childbearing age.

In May, there were 17,041 marriages, an increase of 5.5% over the previous year, compared to 8,372 divorces, a decrease of 0.9%. It might also interest you to read IG releases hotlines to Abuja residents to alert Police of any banditry
