WWII：World War two
U.S. life expectancy (預期壽命) fell by a year and a half in 2020, the
largest one-year decline since World War II.
The decrease for both Black Americans and Hispanic Americans was even worse:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the calculations for
2020 early Wednesday.

The drop is due mainly to the COVID-19 pandemic, which health officials say
is responsible for close to 74% of the overall life expectancy decline.
Killers other than COVID-19 played a role, too, as drug overdoses pushed life
expectancy down, and rising homicides were a small but significant reason for
the decline for Black Americans.

to play a role：發揮了作用、扮演一個角色
to push down：下降
