Life Expectancy In New York Drops By 5 Years

Conservatives have been warning everyone to get out of blue states and a recent study is more proof to do so.

New York City’s Health Department reported that the average life expectancy of New Yorkers has dropped 5 years since the Covid-19 pandemic hit.

Researchers have pointed the Covid-19 pandemic was a big reason why life expectancy dipped to such low levels but what they failed to report is that former Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Nursing Home order is a big reason why New York had a lot of deaths stemming from Covid-19

The Health Department also stated overdose deaths from fentanyl had an impact on the drop of life expectancy too.

Check out what NBC News reported:

New Yorkers aren’t living as long.

The state suffered one of the largest drops in estimated life expectancy following the explosion of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of New Yorkers and has sickened countless more, many of whom still feel the impacts of long-lasting symptoms.

Life expectancy in New York City fell to 78, that’s a drop of 4.6 years, between 2019 and 2020, the city’s health department revealed Friday. That figure is largely due to the pandemic, but has also been fueled by a rise in overdose deaths.

The city’s mortality rate in 2020, fueled by the raging COVID-19 pandemic, surpassed that of the infamous 1918 influenza, new data released this week says. The virus death rate in 2020 was roughly 12 greater per 100,000 lives in 1918.

The health data compiled in the Annual Summary of Vital Statistics offers a stark view of the pandemic’s disastrous toll in 2020, as well as its lasting impact on the future.

Here’s what ABC 7 News reported:

A new study has revealed the toll that the pandemic took on New Yorkers as health officials say life expectancy dropped to 78 years between 2019 and 2020.

That’s a decrease of nearly five years and the worst drop in decades.
