Joe Biden and his cabal of leftists told us that the COVID vaccines would “save America,” but now, after the vaccines have ripped through the country, life expectancy in the U.S. is at a 25-year low in this era of Biden.
According to the latest data, a baby born in 2021 has a life expectancy of 76.4 years, that is the lowest number since 1996.
A baby born in 2019 has a life expectancy of 78.8 years, so that is a drop of 2.4 years in two years time. According to the CDC, we’ve hit a 25 year low, which is credited to two factors – the COVID-19 pandemic and an epidemic of substance abuse and drug addiction.
There were nearly 107,000 fatal drug overdoses in 2021, a 16% increase in the number of deaths in 2020. The coronavirus pandemic only exacerbated the growing drug addiction epidemic with widespread shutdowns, isolating people susceptible to addiction. The lack of social interaction with others and isolation from support networks to keep them from substance abuse played a big role in the increase.
Heart disease and cancer remain the two most prevalent causes of death in the U.S.
The drop in life expectancy is almost identical for men and women – 0.7 years among men and 0.6 years among women. For men, life expectancy is 73.5 years, 79.3 years for women.
Some of the loss of time is COVID. Much is drug deaths.
It’s just another example of how life is getting worse under the Biden junta.Commentary
