    Obesity + COVID + OD + Guns + Abysmal Public Health Infrastructure is a toxic combination.

    Also still a fair amount of liver disease-related mortality percent among young to middle-aged range. Good old alcohol, still being abused in large quantities...although there is also non-alcoholic fatty liver disease from being...fat. Even now being detected in children. Sad.

    I had to look, life expectancy in the Philippines. Very consistent, if slow, increase with covid seemingly having no impact. Increasing by 0.18% per year every year.

    2021 71.41
    2020. 71.28
    2019. 71.16
    2018. 71.04

    So I would ask if the USA decline is covid related, why has it had no impact in some other countries

    It depends where you live and how poor you are.

    Being poor in Hicksville is probably the worst.

    I would suggest advances in medicine are being defeated by lifestyle choices of the poor (facilitated by a lack of regulation / taxation on bad life choices).

    How does that relate to the rapid decline in the last two years?

    Not taking vaccines, isolation lifestyles and not going to the local medical practitioner.

    So why then in poorer Philippines has there been no decline?

    Obesity and average age would seem possible factors to me.

    I think it might be the "deaths per million" number in the covid stats (which is strangely missing right now on Worldometer). But I think it's around 3000 per million for US, but 550 or so for Philippines. Not good at math so would need to figure it all out. In the US, lots of youngish people (40's and 50's) died, I am guessing in countries with younger and healthier populations, the deaths were more among the elderly. So many epidemiology theses to be written...

    As my 94 year old mother in law says - you've got to die of something!
