Guardian: The Covid pandemic has caused the biggest decrease in life expectancy in western Europe since the second world war, according to a study.

Data from most of the 29 countries – spanning most of Europe, the US and Chile – that were analysed by scientists recorded reductions in life expectancy last year and at a scale that wiped out years of progress.

The biggest declines in life expectancy were among males in the US, with a decline of 2.2 years relative to 2019 levels, followed by Lithuanian males (1.7 years).

Life expectancy losses exceeded those recorded around the time of the dissolution of the eastern bloc in central and eastern Europe, according to the research, led by scientists at Oxford’s Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science.

Dr José Manuel Aburto, a co-lead author of the study, said: “For western European countries such as Spain, England and Wales, Italy, Belgium, among others, the last time such large magnitudes of declines in life expectancy at birth were observed in a single year was during the second world war.”

The findings are contained in a paper published in the International Journal of Epidemiology after the analysis of the 29 countries for which official death registrations for last year had been published. A total of 27 experienced reductions in life expectancy.  Read more..

  1. White evangelicals are about 15% of the US population. That’s about 50 million people. 80% of them voted for Trump in the 2020 election. That’s about 40 million voters. 71 million Americans voted for Trump, despite his incompetence, despite his lying, his bullying. Why would they do that? That’s because the a majority of Trump supporters see him as their ticket to the Rapture. These are the Rapture-me-outta-here folks who pray for WWIII to happen so their warrior messiah can return to Earth riding on an ICBM to smite all nonbelievers, Democrats mostly. They already believe the Sun goes around the Earth and has corners, so their charlatan pastors can tell them anything and they’ll believe it.

    • They already believe the Sun goes around the Earth which has corners, so their charlatan pastors can tell them anything and they’ll believe it. Please fix.

    • Not just a ticket to the Rapture, but a Messiah who will smite non-whites with his mighty sword. The blatant but subtle racism crosses all socio-economic lines and “religious” affiliations. Even Trump has to be amazed. But, if it wasn’t him, it would be another. Like all con men, Trump really despises his suckers and marks. And they don’t even know it.
