Scientists from the Scottish National Health Service and the University of Glasgow and Edinburgh have found that coronavirus reduces the average human life by about ten years.
A study published by Wellcome Open Research reported that specialists compared data on patients with “Covid-19” in Italy to a scale developed by the World Health Organization, used to calculate the number of years of life humans lose from disease.
The researchers found that men who died from coronavirus infection lost 13 years of life expectancy, while the average age of women decreased 11 years.
“While the media has focused on the effect of the coronavirus on” people with associated diseases, “the adjustments made to the number and type of diseases of a long-term nature reduce very little of the loss,” wrote David McAllister, a researcher at the University of Glasgow. Years expected from death from the virus. ”
