Corona virus in British newspapers: What is the impact of Covid-19 on mental health?

3 minutes ago

The Corona virus, and what it causes from the Covid 19 epidemic, continues to dominate the coverage of British newspapers, which in their copies issued this morning dealt with many angles of the consequences of the epidemic’s impact on our world.

And it begins with the Eye newspaper and a report on the impact of the Coronavirus and the general lockdown period on mental health. The report says that just as the Coronavirus epidemic has had a very clear impact on our physical health, its impact on mental and psychological health has also been significant.

According to data from the Office for National Statistics, nearly a fifth of adults in Britain felt some form of depression in June, nearly double the normal rate.

A survey by the Royal College of Psychiatrists in May reported that 43 per cent of psychiatrists in Britain had seen an increase in emergency and urgent cases after the general lockdown began.
