In the wake of the Corona pandemic, life expectancy in many countries has fallen by the most since World War II in Western Europe. Researchers at the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science at Oxford University report this in the International Journal of Epidemiology. The decline was greater for men than for women. For the study, the scientists examined data from 29 countries, most of them from Europe, including Germany, as well as Chile and America. According to the study, life expectancy fell in 27 of these countries in 2020, and by at least half a year in 22 countries. In several Western European countries, a similar decline was last observed during World War II, said co-author José Manuel Aburto. Male life expectancy fell the most in the United States: by 2.2 years compared with 2019.
