Possible, Ray, but unlikely. Although that could be a contributary factor.
If you look at my post, above, and link to that graph, you'll see that the death rate fell from 2000 to 2001, 2003 to 2006, 2008 to 2009 and 2010 to 2011. Then 2013 to 2014 and 2015 to 2016.
In none of those years did anybody wear a mask, stay in, not go to the pub., steer clear of crowds etc..
Due to what you suggest is a 'safer lifestyle', the death rate will probably rise in the near future, because people will not develop antibodies against other respiratory diseases due to not being exposed to them.
I'm not a doctor, but I'm not stupid!
Ladies, I'm not a qualified gynaecologist but I'll have a bloody good look at it for you!
