According to GBD, global life expectancy has been reduced due to Covid

The extent of Covid-19's impact on life expectancy was unknown, but now, in a new study, it has been revealed that life expectancy fell by 1.6 years between the pandemic years (2019-2021), which represents a significant decrease in life expectancy compared to previous years.

Worldwide, the pandemic has impacted more profoundly than any event in half a century, including natural disasters, said co-author Dr. Austin.

Population and trends

This GBD study evaluated population trends, and the population growth rate began to decline, after years of continuous growth, during the pandemic period, this decline only increased, a survey shows that growth only continued to occur in poorer countries.

Slowing growth, aging of the population, moving to poorer locations will bring social, political and economic challenges, young populations are decreasing and resources are scarce”, points out Schumacher.

Conducting the study

To estimate excessive mortality, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, scholars count deaths due to virus infection, and the effects of social isolation were also used in the studies, such as the delay in seeking health care, during the period most serious of the pandemic. For those carrying out the research, this study shows the future of health systems, the economy and a valuable basis for the development of policies in the world.
