Index - Tech-Science - The coronavirus epidemic took nearly 28 million years

The coronavirus proved to have lost five times as many lives in the countries studied as it did in the 2015 influenza pandemic, the worst seasonal pandemic since the turn of the century.

Researchers said the epidemic caused loss of life (years of life lost – YLL) In addition, the decline in life expectancy was examined in each country. Life expectancy decreased in 31 of the 37 states studied.

The largest declines were in Russia and the United States.

Life expectancy has decreased by -2.3 years in the first and -2 years in the second due to the coronavirus. Hungary is also among the countries studied, with a value of -0.9 years, which is the 15th worst indicator on the list.

However, there are also six countries where life expectancy has increased or stagnated.

These are the states where, thanks to strict measures, not only has the coronavirus epidemic been reduced to a minimum, but other diseases are becoming less common.

New Zealand performed the best, with an average increase in life expectancy of 0.7 years. In addition, Taiwan also saw a 0.3 percent increase, while life expectancy is stagnating in Norway, South Korea, Denmark and Iceland.
