A NEW STUDY OUT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT URBANA CHAMPAIGN FINDS THAT 2020 WAS A DEADLIER YEAR THAN THE PREVIOUS FIVE, EVEN WITHOUT COVID-19 NUMBERS.

 

THE VIRUS WAS ONE OF THE LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH LAST YEAR, BUT U OF I COMPUTER SCIENCE PROFESSOR SHELDON JACOBSON SAYS THEY FOUND NUMBERS GREW FOR OTHER DEATHS AS WELL.

 

 

AND WHILE THOSE 65 AND OLDER WERE MOST VULNERABLE DURING THE PANDEMIC, JACOBSON SAYS MALES BETWEEN THE AGES OF 15 AND 64 WERE HIT THE HARDEST BY OTHER CAUSES OF DEATH IN 2020. 

 

 

HE SAYS IT'S IMPORTANT TO REVIEW THESE FIGURES TO ADDRESS ADDITIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH NEEDS THAT AROSE DURING THE PANDEMIC AND HOW THEY CAN BE BETTER TREATED IN THE FUTURE.
