Unfortunately, it’s not possible to objectively verify this claim as there is no enough publicly available evidence to support the claim.According to the article published by Global Times on March 03, 2020, Marriage registration offices since reopening on March 1 in some districts of Xi'an, capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi Province saw an increase in the number of divorce appointments amid coronavirus control efforts. A similar situation also occurred in another marriage registration office in the city's Yanta district.

Daily Mail reported that since February 24, 2020, there are over 300 couples, who have scheduled appointments to get a divorce in Dazhou, Sichuan Province of south-western China.

However, the claim stating that divorce increased as many couples were bound with each other at home for over a month due to coronavirus cannot be verified as there are no credible sources to confirm. Also, the news reports have reported divorce cases only in 2 provinces of China.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
