The Effect of Coronavirus on Mental Health

The coronavirus pandemic has affected people all over the world not only physically but mentally as well. Thanks to the many awareness programs launched, we are all conscious of how to protect ourselves physically from the virus. But we need to know that protecting ourselves mentally is of equal importance during these times of stress, worry, distancing and isolation.

How Does Coronavirus Affect Us Mentally?

There are 3 ways by which this virus affects our mental well-being:

  • The Fear of Uncertainty: The virus has managed to make uncertain what we always took for granted – our health, the health of our loved ones and our finances to name a few. Doubts and fears regarding these are constantly racing through our minds. During times like these, it is important to remind ourselves that it is impossible to control all aspects of a situation. It is necessary to find a balance between protecting ourselves by following government guidelines and stopping ourselves from over-thinking the situation.

  • Information Overload: The omnipresent social media often places an overload of information at our doorstep. As little as two social media updates on the virus are enough to trigger panic. The fear of the virus indeed spreads faster than the virus itself and people often become part of an emotional contagion spreading their fear to the people around them.

  • Social Isolation: Man is a social animal and the isolation that this pandemic seems to demand goes against the very nature of mankind putting him under a lot of stress. While social distancing is recommended, emotional distancing is not and social media can in this case can play a positive role by keeping us connected to our friends, family and loved ones.
