Washington. According to new data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, life expectancy in the US declined for the second year in a row in 2021, nearly a year higher than in 2020. In the first two years of the COVID pandemic, the estimated US life expectancy has dropped by nearly three years. Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have blamed Covid for the decline, circa 2021. The report said that the estimated life expectancy has decreased by about three years due to the corona virus and other reasons.
However, earlier in the 1940s, during World War II, there were reports of declining life expectancy. According to the report, the officials of the investigation center say that when the vaccine was made to protect against the corona epidemic within a year, the second version of corona started wreaking havoc in America. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention said in its report that due to the new form of corona, people have started being admitted to hospitals. At the same time, problems like drug overdose, heart disease and suicide were the first to come to the fore, which increased the death toll from the new version of Corona.
According to a report related to life span, in the year 2019, America’s age was 78 years 10 months. In the year 2020, it was reduced to 77 years. In the year 2021, it was reduced to 76 years 1 month. The disparity in life expectancy between men and women also last year became the largest in more than two decades. Men now have a life expectancy of 73.2 years, about six years less than women. According to the CDC, more than 460,000 people died of corona in the US in 2021.
