Americans lost an average of one year in the coronary period. This has been revealed by a recent report by the National Center for Health Statistics. According to the report, the average life expectancy of Americans in 2019 was recorded at 78.8 years. In the first half of 2020, the figure fell to 77.8 years. This is being touted as the largest decrease in the average life expectancy of Americans since the 1940s. According to the report, the black age of Corona in the US recorded the highest decline in the age of 2.7 years. The average life expectancy of blacks in 2019 was 74.7 years. At the same time, it decreased to 72 years in the first half of 2020.

In
terms of the Hispanic community, there has been a slight decrease in the age of the white community. In 2020, the average life expectancy of the people involved in it decreased from 81.8 years in 2019 to 1.9 years to 79.9 years. At the same time, the average age of the white community was recorded at 78.8 years in 2019. It turned 78 in the first half of 2020. The gap between the average life expectancy of white and black people in the US increased to six years in the Coronary period. This figure is 46 percent higher than the year 2019. Since 1998, it is said to be the biggest difference in the average age of the two communities.

Why such a difference between the
white and black community: Noreen Goldman, senior demography expert at Princeton University, blames two factors for increasing the difference in the average age of white and black people. First, the deployment of mostly blacks and people from the Hispanic community on the front lines in the war against Kovid-19. Second, they have limited access to health services compared to white Americans.

In the year-long decline, the
report estimates the average life expectancy of people based on deaths from corona infection in the US up to June 2020. It also does not take into account deaths due to drug overdose, which leads to a decrease in life expectancy of 0.1 to 0.2 years every year. As such, experts believe that in 2020 the average age of Americans will have decreased to 1.13 years.
