Lost an eighteen-month lifespan in 2020. This trend is still marked among ethnic minorities, almost 3 years for African Americans and Hispanics.
The life expectancy of Americans is expected to drop to one and a half years by 2020, the biggest drop since World War II, according to the major federal public health agency, which says it is largely responsible for the Govt epidemic. According to figures released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this alarming trend is sharpening for black and Hispanic ethnic minorities.
Life expectancy at birth has increased from 78.8 years in 2019 to 77.3 years in 2020. These 77.3 years are the lowest since 2003. For African Americans, life expectancy is declining by 2.9 years, increasing from 74.7 years in 2019 to 71.8 years. In 2020.

Covid and opiate involved

Increased opioid use during infections. From 2014 to 2018, life expectancy in the United States decreased as a result of overdose of opioids, especially synthetic opioids such as fentanyl.
