Shortly after China took over Hong Kong, the quality of life of the now captured city immediately went down, as it always does wherever leftism reigns. Now, Hong Kong no longer has the world’s life expectancy. A recent survey also showed Hong Kong residents report the lowest levels of wellbeing overall, and specifically in the physical, mental, and social sense, since the survey has been conducted.
Hong Kong residents no longer have the world’s longest life expectancies, with the city relinquishing its crown to Japan as Covid and overall stress weighs on local lifespans.
Women in Hong Kong were expected to live until 86.8 years old on average in 2022, compared with 87.1 for their Japanese counterparts, according to the latest statistics published this week by the city’s government. Data for 2023 has not yet been released.
Life expectancy for men in the Asian financial hub was 80.7—the same as in Singapore, but shorter than Sweden, Japan and Norway, the data show.
