<due to COVID-19, an additional 7 million unintended pregnancies are expected to occur>
with major disruptions to services. For every 3 months the lockdown continues, assuming high levels of
disruption, up to 2 million additional women could also be unable to use modern contraceptives. If the
lockdown continues for six months and there are major service disruptions thanks to COVID-19, a further 7
million unintended pregnancies are expected to occur. The number of unintended pregnancies will increase
because the lockdown continues and services disruptions are extended.
