How COVID-19 Changed Life Expectancy Rates in the U.S. and Around the World
COVID-19 has caused an inordinate number of deaths around the world so far, causing life-expectancies to plunge.

A study published Oct. 17 in Nature Human Behavior reviewed life-expectancy trends in 29 countries during 2021, building on previous data the scientists had analyzed from 2020, and found that COVID-19 continued to account for most life-expectancy losses in 2021.

For James Rose and Kate Smith, taking industrial action at examination board AQA was not an easy decision. But it was, they both say, the right one. At the end of August, on strike again, they headed south from Manchester with four colleagues and three organisers. In London, with general secretary Christina McAnea, they took their message from UNISON Centre (pictured above) to the AQA headquarters in nearby Tavistock Square. It’s a simple one, summarised as a call to treat the workforce staff decently. James is a preparation coordinator, working on quality control and standardisation. The latter is a process where, after...
