The average lifespan of an American who is the age of 65 this year is expected to decline by a full year due to the number of seniors dying from coronavirus, according to research from Princeton University and the University of Southern California.  In addition to the myriad deaths of seniors, the pandemic is undermining the ability of seniors to engage in activities associated with better health and longer lives, including socializing, exercising and helping others.  These variables are important at all stages of life and particularly for those in midlife and older, Dr. Philip Pizzo, former dean of Stanford University’s Medical School told The Wall Street Journal.
