With better access to healthcare and education, more people in developed countries are living longer. For the first time in history, life expectancy is expected to hit 90 in developed countries by 2030, according to a new study.
The study published in the British Lancet medical journal predicted that a girl born in South Korea in 2030 can expect to live 90.8 years, while a boy could live to 84.1 years.
In Singapore, a girl born in 2030 could live to 84.8, while a boy could live till 79.6 years, based on the researchers’ model. This is similar to Singapore’s current life expectancy for women (84.9) and men (80.4).
