Copy paste from another comment, but you seem to have a similar misconception:

As far as I understand life expectancy, because they haven't died yet they don't count towards the number. This is just people who already died early. They guys currently sick will decrease the [area counted] life expectancy once/if they die early. (Who knows maybe they will be cured some how, maybe immortality will be discovered in their life time!)
