It seems that the USA is facing a "baby bust" not a "baby boom" due to the pandemic.

Despite spending more time at home due to the pandemic, the US is in the midst of a baby bust, not a baby boom.

US births have been falling for nearly a decade and 2019 saw the fewest births in 35 years, but the final numbers for 2020 could slip even lower.

An estimated 300,000 fewer babies are expected in 2021, according to a study by Brookings Institution think tank.

This together with a high death rate might see a significant slow-down in the population growth rate of the States, but probably is not enough to bring it into decline (unless the variants take an unexpectedly high toll).
