China will allow couples to have a third child, the government announced, an attempt to defuse a demographic timebomb that threatens its prosperity and global influence, NBC News reported over the weekend.

On Friday, the ceremonial legislature formally amended the Population and Family Planning Law.

The change in the law – which was initially decided this spring at a Communist Party Politburo meeting – is part of a decades-long effort by the ruling Communist Party to dictate the size of families. In the 1980s, China began limiting couples to one child – which resulted in forced abortions as well as the killing of female fetuses and a resulting imbalance in the s*x ratio. Still, China credited its one-child policy for preventing 400 million additional births in the world’s most populous country, thus saving resources and driving economic growth.

Then six years ago, the one-child policy was amended to two children as the birthrate plummeted. China fears it will age before it becomes wealthy, the news outlet wrote.

The number of Chinese over 60 made up 18.7 percent of the country’s total population in 2020, 5.44 percent higher than in 2010. Meanwhile, the working-age population fell to 63.3 percent from 70.1 percent a decade ago. And China’s census in May showed the nation’s total fertility rate dropped from 1.7 in 2018 to 1.3 in 2020, below the 1.5 mark that usually warns of a population decline, the South China Morning Post, reported.

Meanwhile, the National People’s Congress also called for additional parental leave and childcare resources as well as addressing discrimination against pregnant women and mothers in the workplace. The government, meanwhile, is also considering new measures in finance, taxation, schooling, housing and employment “to ease the burden on families,” the amendment said.

Canada, unlike most of the world, announced over the weekend it will require all passengers and workers on commercial flights and other forms of international travel to prove they have been vaccinated, a move aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus as the country opens its borders to the United States, @npr reported.

The new policy will apply to passengers and workers on planes, trains, and cruise ships.

The government said the decision comes amid a “dynamic public health situation” due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It said the policy would take effect before October.

There will be exceptions to the mandatory vaccination requirement but officials didn’t elaborate.

The decision comes a week after Canada reopened its border with the United States when the government eased the travel ban for Americans who have been vaccinated for at least 14 days and provide a negative test.

Canada is the US’ second most popular travel destination after Mexico.

Meanwhile, the country has gone through two Covid-19 waves and is experiencing another rise in confirmed cases.

Currently, more than 70% of eligible Canadians are fully vaccinated and more than 82% have had their first shot, according to the Canadian Treasury Board.
