[The Guardian] 7,000 babies die daily despite record low for child mortality

[October 19, 2017] The Guardian 

Research shows that, despite 'remarkable progress' on child mortality, many of the 5.6 million deaths last year among children aged under five were preventable. 

The number of children who die before reaching their fifth birthday has fallen to an all-time low, yet children around the world continue to die at an alarming rate, with 5.6 million deaths recorded last year. 

In it's annual report on child mortality, the UN said many of the deaths -- which averaged 15,000 a day in 2016 -- were from preventable diseases.
