Shocking numbers.. high deaths and low marriage and births rates in Lebanon

The economic crisis that Lebanon has been experiencing since 2019, and the outbreak of the Corona epidemic, had their repercussions on the Lebanese situation, especially social ones, where the rates of marriage, divorce and births decreased, compared to the increase in deaths, in comparison between 2018 and 2021. And based on the figures of the General Directorate of Personal Status, the International Information Center indicated that marriage contracts decreased by 2,626 i,e. 7.2 percent, between 2018 and 2021. As well as divorce contracts, there were 244 contracts, down by 3 percent. Births also decreased by 29,827, i,e. 32 percent, which is considered a significant and dangerous decline as it reflects on the population movement.

As for the death rate, it rose 35.6 percent between the two mentioned years, which is also a serious indicator due mainly to the outbreak of Corona, as the number of deaths increased by7,600 as a result of the spread of the virus.

With the gravity of this situation, where are those concerned in all of this?

It is not new, the preoccupation of those concerned with positions and offices at the expense of the homeland and the citizen, even if they are the main reason for plunging the country into a quagmire of crises.
