This is one of the poorest, most infuriating news articles I have recently read. The author makes claims in text that are not congruent with the graphic in the article. And I can’t see anything true when I look at the most recent NVSR, 23 MAR 2021. It’s mostly a cov19 scare piece disguised as a story about GFR. And the doctor who claims signficance about 7.7% monthly decline from NOV to DEC 2020? Could not be a bona fide epidemiologist.
Sadly, there are serious concerns about what worldwide fertility rates may be telling us and they have nothing to do with cov19.
