COVID-19 is an acute respiratory disease caused by novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 or 2019-nCoV. Recently, on March 11, 2020, COVID-19 was declared by the WHO as a virus pandemic disease. Many measures were conducted to tackle COVID-19 outbreak. The important one is social isolation that have been adopted all over the world which are the first one done as widely as that in modern history. Such measures have wide reaching consequences as reducing significantly the opportunity for casual sexual meetings, and increasing sexual intercourse for couples with stable sexual relationships, especially married ones. This leads us to the conclusion that within 9 months there will be an increase in births. This means that the global fertility will increase, especially in the developing countries whom have the highest rate of fertility.
