Washington: The average age of American citizens has dropped by almost three years, a US agency has revealed.
According to international media reports, the US Agency for Disease Control has released a research report on the average age of American citizens.
The report states that the average age of American citizens decreased by one year during the first six months of 2020, the first time since World War II that the average age of American citizens decreased.
The report states that in January 2020, data from January to June showed that minorities were the most affected by the low age.
The report states that the average age of black citizens decreased by three years, while the average age of Hispanic Americans decreased by two years.
Medical experts in the United States say that the decline in the age of the citizens was due to the damage caused by the plague, as drug use increased so much during this period that heart disease also spread rapidly.
According to experts, in the year 2020, apart from coronavirus, other diseases will also spread rapidly, of which heart disease is the most prominent.
The report states that in the six months before 2020, the average age of Americans was 77.08 years, compared to 78.8 years in 2019.
According to current statistics, the average age of men in the United States is 75.01 years, while the average age of women is 80.05 years.
The average age in the United States has been steadily rising over the twentieth century, a sign that the population of any country is healthy. But last year proved fatal, with more than 3 million people dying from other diseases, including coronavirus.
