Corona Virus


Life expectancy: Due to the Corona epidemic (Covid-19 Pandemic), people’s lives have decreased. Yes, this shocking disclosure has been made in the research report of IIPS. It has been said in the report that the impact on the lives of people has been seen from many levels. The corona epidemic has reduced the average life expectancy of people by two years. This has been revealed in a statistical analysis by scientists of the International Institute of Population Sciences (IIPS), Mumbai.

Decrease in life of both men and women
According to this report, a reduction in life expectancy at birth has been noted in both men and women due to the pandemic. This report was recently published in the journal ‘BMC Public Health’. This report has been prepared by Professor Suryakant Yadav of IIPS.

Know how much is estimated now Laugh
“The life expectancy in 2019 was 69.5 years for men and 72 years for women, which has come down to 67.5 years and 69.8 years respectively in 2020,” the report said. If the trend remains constant in the future, life expectancy at birth is calculated based on the average number of years a newborn is likely to survive.

39-69 year old people died more
Professor Yadav’s study also looked at the ‘lifetime disparity’ and found that the 39-69 age group has the highest number of deaths due to COVID-19. Yadav said, “There were more deaths in the 35-79 age group from Kovid-19 in 2020 than in the normal years and this group is more responsible for the decrease in life expectancy.”

Know what the director said?
Dr. KS James, Director, IIPS said, “Every time we are hit by a pandemic, the life expectancy at birth decreases. For example, life expectancy was reduced in African countries after the HIV-AIDS epidemic. When it comes under control, life expectancy improves.
