On the occasion of World Health Day, Eurostat today published statistics relating to the Number of Healthy Years of Life per country.
In 2018, the number of years a person is expected to continue to live in a healthy condition at birth in the European Union was estimated to be 64.2 years for women and 63.7 years for men.
These statistics show some excellent news for Malta. In fact, Among the EU Member States, Malta recorded the highest number of healthy life years in 2018 for women (73.4 years), followed by Sweden (72.0 years) and Ireland (70.4 years), whilst the highest numbers for men were also recorded in Sweden (73.7), Malta (71.9) and Ireland (68.4).
All the more reason for all of us to stay home, and stay safe!
