World reaches 7bn

The number of people living on Planet Earth rose to 7 billion yesterday, but not because of any births in Donegal!

The number of people living on Planet Earth rose to 7 billion yesterday, but not because of any births in Donegal!

A spokesperson for the HSE said no babies were delivered at Donegal hospitals yesterday. “We don’t even have anyone in labour at the moment, so it’s extremely unlikely that the 7 billionth person in the world will have been born in Donegal.” The honour went instead to Nargis Yadav, who was born in Uttar Pradesh, India at around 10am. She was one of half a million babies born yesterday.
