Stress can cause Covid-19 infection

A study published in the ‘Annals of Behavioral Medicine found that people who suffered from anxiety, stress, and depression in the early days of the pandemic are at higher risk of contracting Covid-19.

The study shows that many of those who reported COVID-19 had mental trouble during the initial stage of the pandemic.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, many countries went into extreme lockdown, forcing people to stay home to avoid covid infection. People who had to isolate themselves had a profound effect on their mental health.

The uneven work from the home cycle also became a factor in people’s deteriorating mental health. It created frustration, exhaustion, and tension in the minds of people.

The study, which was led by professor Kavita Vedhara in the school of Medicine at the University of Nottingham, was conducted with the aim of finding out whether people who feel stressed, isolated, and have other psycholocgical issues are at higher risk of becoming infected.

According to the results, people who felt stressed, anxious or depressed at the start of the pandemic contracted Covid-19. They also had more severe symptoms as compared to others.

Professor Vedhara further said, our data suggest that increased stress, anxiety, and depression are not only consequences of living with the pandemic, But may also be factors that increase our risk of getting SARS-COV-2.
