"The health crisis also showed its effects more clearly on the demographic phenomena, with slightly less birth being recorded against the previous year and more deaths, in April," mentioned the same release.

"For a complete picture of the demographic phenomena as seen in March-April 2020, in the context of the COVID19 pandemic, we must consider the fact that the provisions of the military ordinances introduced certain limits in the possibility of carrying out some events with more than three persons. The authorities also banned people from leaving the house and the locality except for a few reasons, suspended activities in enclosed areas, determined the Notary Public Union to delay the terms for the divorce files for the period after the end of the state of emergency. Moreover, the data must also be interpreted in correlation with the information coming from various administrative sources, especially those published by the Ministry of Health, through the National Public Health Institute," said the INS.
