US life expectancy falls the most since WWII to 77.3 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC report finds

Daily Mail - Science & tech

The COVID-19 pandemic caused life expectancy in the U.S. to decrease by 1.5 years, a new report suggests. In 2019, life expectancy - or the average number of years a person lives - for the general American population was 78.8 years. However, using provisional data and estimates, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) found this figure fell to 77.3 years in 2020. This represents the biggest drop seen since World War II. While the decline in life expectancy is primarily due to the virus - which has killed more than 600,000 Americans so far - the team says there are other factors at play including a rise in drug overdoses and deaths from diabetes.
