An Employee Benefits News article contends that the current focus on COVID-19 hides the everyday costs of unhealthy habits:
“In a typical year, lifestyle-related disease costs the global economy 43 working days per person due to poor health and premature death and 5% productivity loss per worker with chronic conditions” (in addition to the medical costs associated with these unmanaged conditions).
“Even as we overcome COVID-19, the rise of mental health conditions and non-communicable diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes is reshaping households, companies and countries.”
