The toll of COVID-19 on mental health in the United States
COVID-19 has had some very stark and very obvious consequences.
The United States has less than five percent of the world’s population, but almost a quarter of its deaths with coronavirus.
But there is also a hidden horror unfolding here and it may soon get even worse.
People with mental health and addiction issues, already vulnerable, have found themselves even more exposed.
Some have simply been unable to cope.
From Brain, Behavior, and Immunity medical journal, 30 July 2020, based on research in Italy:
Anxiety and depression in COVID-19 survivors: role of inflammatory and clinical predictors
“After three weeks of treatments, I was healing from COVID, at home, had no fever, and just a little cough. But sometimes at night, my breath could go away all of a sudden, making me feel as if I was to die. I knew what it was because I had suffered from panic attacks in the past. I stayed there out on the balcony, for hours, trying to put fresh air into my lungs. It was terrible. Panic made me suffer more than COVID.”
