The Covid pandemic, which claimed more thanlives in the United States inhas ificantly affected life expectancy, University of Southern California USC and Princeton University researchers have found. Princeton researchers have projected that, due to the pandemic deaths last year, life expectancy at birth for Americans will shorten by more than one year. That is the largest single-year decline in life expectancy in at least 40 years and is the lowest life expectancy estimated since The researchers project that, due to the pandemic deaths last year, life expectancy at birth for Americans will shorten by 1.
The projected pandemic-related drop in life expectancy is about 10 times as large as the declines seen in recent years.
The declines in life expectancy are likely even starker among Black and Latino communities. For Blacks, the researchers project their life expectancy would shorten by 2. Whites are also impacted, but their projected decline is much smaller — 0. COVID appears to have eliminated many of the gains made in closing the Black-white life expectancy gap since Black and Latino Americans have experienced a disproportionate burden of coronavirus infections and deaths, reflecting persistent structural inequalities that heighten risk of exposure to and death from COVID An exception was the annual reduction of 0.
The last major pandemic to ificantly reduce life expectancy in a short period of time was the influenza pandemic, which research indicates reduced life expectancy by an extraordinary years. As of Jan. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the vaccines may not be enough to immediately reverse the impact of the disease on U. The study authors say they are now studying occupational exposures to COVID by race and ethnicity to further comprehend its disproportionate impact.
