China News Service, June 18, according to a comprehensive report, according to a new analysis, in addition to heart disease and cancer, the new crown epidemic is the cause of death that will shorten the life of Americans the most in 2020.
Since the outbreak of the new crown, more than 600,000 Americans have died from the new crown.
Behind this huge number, there is a more subtle number, which makes the death data caused by the new crown epidemic more clear, that is, the life lost by the deceased.
The analysis refers to the average life expectancy of the victim to estimate the number of years of life lost.
The picture shows a man running outside the Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, USA.
For example, if a person with a life expectancy of 80 dies at the age of 50, it is estimated that they will live less than 30 years.
Through the analysis of this statistical data, we can see to what extent this virus has shortened the lives of Americans.
The Pew Research Center recently analyzed data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and found that 380,000 Americans will die from the new crown in 2020. If the number of life lost by these people is added up, it will reach nearly 5.5 million years.
This is more than the total number of lives lost by Americans in 2020 due to other unexpected causes of death, including traffic accidents, drug overdose, drowning and gun deaths.
According to the analysis data of the Pew Research Center, Americans lost 10.2 million years of life due to cancer in 2020, which means that the reduction in life span caused by death from the new crown last year reached half of that of cancer.
According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, victims who died of the new coronavirus have shortened their lives by an average of 14 years, which is at the same level as those who died of heart disease or stroke.
Victims of accidents lose an average of 31 years of life, which reflects that people who die from accidents are younger than those who die from the new crown.
The data also shows that about 80% of people who die after being infected with the new crown virus are elderly people over 65 years old.
According to data, Americans who reach the age of 65 are generally expected to live to be 85 years old.
"In other words, this epidemic killed many Americans, and these people could have been expected to live a few more years or even decades," Pew researcher Stephanie Kramer wrote.
"Older Americans are more likely to die from diseases including heart disease and Alzheimer's disease, and now there is a new crown."
