US Life Expectancy declines again in US due to Covid and vaccination deniers

In 2020, the US life expectancy dropped dramatically, the largest since WWII. Now it is even lower.

A new scientific study reports Americans are living shorter lifespans.

The study says Americans lost another .4  years of life expectancy in 2021, following a dramatic decline in 2020 when statistics showed a 1.9 years loss.

The study was created using data from National Center for Health Statistics, the Human Mortality Database, and other international statistical agencies.

The continued decline in Americans' life expectancy, the researchers said, is obvious.

Researchers noted, "Although the introduction and availability of effective vaccines were expected to curb US mortality rates in 2021, slow vaccine uptake and the spread of the Delta variant produced large surges in mortality."

Covid is one of the top three causes of death in the states, since 2020. Due to millions of Americans refusing to get vaccinated, with many wholeheartedly denying Covid exists,  the US had  deaths from Covid hit over one million (based on all official Covid deaths reported through August 20, 2022.)

Now, if you are American, your life expectancy which was  78.9 years in 2019, is now down to 76.6 years in 2021.

The US now has a lower life expectancy than the average of all similar, developed countries. Click here to read the Kaiser study.

In a statement by Dr. Steven Woolf, study author and director emeritus of the Center on Society and Health at Virginia Commonwealth University, the reasons for this decline in Americans' life expectancy is clear.

"This speaks volumes about the life consequences of how the US handled the pandemic. What happened in the U.S. is less about the variants than the levels of resistance to vaccination and the public's rejection of practices, such as masking and mandates, to reduce viral transmission."
