Symbolic "Eight Billionth Baby" born in Manila

The eighth billionth individual in the world is thought to be a newborn girl who was born in Tondo, Manila. Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital welcomed Vinice Mabansag at 1:29 in the morning (local time). The Philippines Commission on Population and Development posted pictures of the newborn girl and her mother on Facebook to commemorate her birth.

India will likely surpass China as the most populous nation in the coming year

The world population has grown by one billion people in the past 12 years, and India will likely surpass China as the most populous nation in the coming year.

“The world has reached another population milestone after a baby girl born in Tondo, Manila was chosen to symbolically mark the eight billionth person in the world,” the Philippines’ Commission on Population and Development said in another Facebook post.

“Baby Vinice was welcomed on Nov. 15 by nurses at Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital as well as representatives from the Commission on Population and Development,” it added.

8 billion hopes. 8 billion dreams. 8 billion possibilities

The world has reached a major milestone in public health, according to the UN, which has increased life expectancy and lowered mortality rates. However, the moment also serves as a wake-up call for humanity to look beyond the statistics and fulfill its shared responsibility to protect people and the environment, beginning with the most vulnerable.

“8 billion hopes. 8 billion dreams. 8 billion possibilities. Our planet is now home to 8 billion people,” the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) tweeted. In contrast, the global population has grown quite quickly over the past century, and despite a gradual slowdown in growth, the UN projects that the world’s population will surpass 9 billion around 2037 and 10 billion around 2058.
