Compared to other countries, the U.S. is doing worse in maintaining good health and life expectancy. See article (https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/covid-takes-another-bite-us-225913278.html) that this quote comes from: The U.S. fared far worse than 19 other wealthy countries researchers examined, including England, France, Italy, South Korea, Spain and Sweden, most of which saw increases in life expectancy in 2021. Noreen Goldman, a demographer at Princeton University who was not involved in the study, told NPR that the report reflects a shameful performance by the U.S. “It just continues to boggle my mind how poorly we’ve come through this pandemic,” she said. “And I find that disgraceful.”
