Study warns that global warming could lead to more stillbirths in an ongoing covid-19 variant era.
[Alles Europa News]; The findings show the importance of research in reducing stillbirth rates worldwide, said Vicki Flenady, director of the Center for Excellence in Mortinate Research at the Research Institute on Matter.
“Even in 2021, every 16 seconds there’s a stillbirth somewhere in the world,” Flenady lamented.
“Stillbirths have a traumatic and lasting impact on women and their families, who often suffer from deep psychological suffering, as well as stigma, even in high-income countries.”
Rising temperatures, caused by climate change, could lead to a global increase in stillbirths, researchers warn.
The team, from the University of Queensland in Australia, analyzed 12 studies on the subject.
The University of Queensland is the University of the Public Researcher, located primarily in Brisbane, the capital of the Australian State of Queensland.
