Global life expectancy decreased by 1.8 years after the Covid-19 pandemic
Also according to the World Population Outlook 2022 report, the United Nations estimates that the global life expectancy trend will increase again and increase to about 77.2 years by 2050.
The average life expectancy of the world’s population decreased from 72.8 years in 2019 to 71 years in 2022, which is about 1.8 years, according to the United Nations World Population Outlook 2022 report.
The latest UN report statistics, the life expectancy average of the world’s population is lower after two years, since Covid-19 began to break out in China.
Covid-19 is explained as the main cause of “significant decline in life expectancy” in some countries.
“However, the impact of the pandemic on life expectancy varies from region to region and country,” the WHO report added.
Specifically, in some countries including Bolivia, Botswana, Lebanon, Mexico, Oman and Eastern Europe, the average life expectancy has decreased by almost 4 years since the onset of the pandemic.
