The pandemic strikes again

NCPA July 21, 2021

As if COVID-19 hasn’t wreaked enough havoc on our lives, the CDC now tells us that life expectancy in the United States fell by a year and a half in 2020 to 77.3 years, the lowest level since 2003. The CDC says this is primarily due to the deaths caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This represents the biggest one-year decline since World War II, when life expectancy fell 2.9 years between 1942 and 1943.
