Life expectancy in the US sees big drop amid pandemic

Feb 18, 2021 17:10 IST

Life expectancy in the United States dropped a staggering one year during the first half of 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic caused its first wave of deaths, health officials are reporting. 

Life expectancy is how long a baby born today can expect to live, on average.

Minorities suffered the biggest impact, with Black people losing nearly three years and Hispanics, nearly two years, according to early CDC estimates. 

Experts say this shows the profound impact of Covid-19, not just on deaths directly due to infection but also from heart disease, cancer and other conditions.
