The world will be awash with newborns in 2018, and as many as four million could have babies by the end of the year, according to a new report.
This is according to the Pew Research Center, which released its latest Global Burden of Disease report on Thursday.
In 2018, the global population will reach 7.2 billion people, according the report.
That means more than 2.4 billion people will have children by 2020.
The numbers are still growing, but they’re at an all-time high.
The report notes that the global number of births in 2020 will be 1.8 billion, up from 1.5 billion in 2017.
Meanwhile, the number of deaths will reach 11.2 million, up 1.2% from 10.4 million in 2017, the report said.
The population has been growing, which means more babies are needed to keep up with the growth.
In addition, the study notes that there are nearly two billion more people living in sub-Saharan Africa than there were at the end, making for a population of 2.6 billion people.
By 2040, the world’s population will have nearly doubled.
“The population boom is likely to continue into the next decade and beyond, and it’s clear that it will only accelerate over time,” the report’s authors wrote.
It’s not just the birth numbers that are impressive.
The global population has doubled in the last decade, and scientists expect it to double again by 2050.
The researchers said they’re expecting that the world could be adding another billion people by then.
They expect that this number will only increase if there are more babies born to people who are already living.
The number of people worldwide who are living with HIV and other communicable diseases will grow by nearly 50% between now and 2040.
The study predicts that the number will reach 4.4 trillion by then, compared to the current 4.1 trillion.
