(Worthy News) – Life expectancy in the United States plummeted over the past several years, federal health authorities said this week, a grim reminder of the toll wrought by both the COVID-19 pandemic and a host of health maladies and illnesses that have come along with it.

A Vital Statistics Rapid Release fact sheet published by the National Center for Health Statistics revealed that “in 2021, life expectancy at birth was 76.1,” a decline from roughly 79 years in 2019.

The year-over-year drop was slightly more pronounced in men then women, with the former seeing an expectancy decline of fully one from 2020 year and the latter recording a decline of eight-tenths of a year. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
