Given how covid-19 has hit elderly people hard I had thought that life expectancy would fall.  

Quote Life expectancy in the US fell by a full year in the first half of 2020, a change experts say was fuelled by the growing coronavirus pandemic.

The life expectancy for the entire population dropped to 77.8 years, according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control.

"This is a huge decline," Dr Robert Anderson, the CDC's Chief of Mortality Statistics, told the Associated Press.

But there were even greater changes among ethnic minority groups.

The data does not take into account the massive surge in deaths at the end of 2020, so by now the situation might be a lot worse than the article states.

....or  if you continue the quote:-  "and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years..."  then 17 years.     


Quote For women, life expectancy is 80.5 years after it fell by almost a year.
 

Who are the strong ones?
