1 in 3 CoVid-19 patients with psychiatric or neurological conditions

A new study from the University of Oxford, published in the journal The Lancet Psychiatry , found that 34% of CoVid-19 patients had been diagnosed with a psychiatric or neurological condition within six months of being infected with the coronavirus.

17% of COVID-19 patients were diagnosed with anxiety disorders and 14% with mood disorders, including depression. The Oxford researchers also looked at two control groups of patients with influenza to make sure that their numbers didn't just reflect the experience of the general public living through a pandemic.

Isolation and no human contact contributes

"For anxiety and depression, dealing with the stress of knowing you got COVID, having to isolate, worrying about your job, your future, your health, that's the most likely explanation for those diagnoses."

The theory that external circumstances are mostly to blame for mental health conditions in COVID-19 patients is somewhat confirmed by another of Harrison's findings. There was no significant difference in the number of people with anxiety and depression found in patients with mild COVID-19, those who had to go to the hospital and those who had to be placed in intensive care units.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
