Beijing Population: For the first time in 19 years, the population in the capital of China decreased, the reason – Corona or famine?

China Population Decline: The population growth rate of China (China), the most populous country in the world, has decreased significantly. The capital there, Beijing, is one of the largest cities in the world, although shocking reports have come out about its population. In the report of American media CNN, it has been said that there was a decline in population in Beijing last year. Thousands of people got reduced here.

This has happened for the first time in 19 years, when the number of permanent residents has decreased in the capital of China. Citing official figures, CNN reported that the population of permanent residents of China’s capital Beijing is set to drop from 21.88 million in 2021 to 21.84 million in 2022. Meanwhile, the number of expatriates in Beijing also declined during the same period.

The population decreased due to the epidemic?
 Beijing is such a city, which is counted among the most populous cities in the world. For many years it was number one in the world. However, when the coronavirus started spreading in China, thousands of people died in these cities. China did not reveal the exact figure of deaths due to corona here, which was widely discussed in the media of western countries. Beijing was under strict lockdown for months. And, CNN reports that for the first time in 19 years, the population is set to decline in 2022. Many experts are linking the reduced population here with the deaths during the Corona period.

The last time Beijing recorded more deaths than births was in 2003, during the deadly Severe Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak. It was spreading in southern China and infected thousands of people worldwide. In the official reports alone, more than 8,000 cases were registered. Now the reason for the recent decline in the population of Beijing is being attributed to severe famine. However, the institutions monitoring the global population are not able to digest this fact, experts believe that millions of people have died in China due to Corona, but the Chinese government has greatly reduced the number of deaths. .

China’s population decreased for the first time last year
According to reports, China’s national population has also decreased for the first time since the 1961 famine last year. And, in the report of the UN itself, it is predicted that this year India will overtake China in terms of population, then India will be the most populous country in the world.
