A 32-year-old woman who was home quarantined ended her life by hanging herself in her house in the early hours of Friday in Sandur of Ballari district. Fear and anxiety about a new disease and what could happen can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children.
According to the police, the deceased was a teacher at a private school. The mother-in-law and father-in-law of the woman tested positive for Covid-19 and they were also in-home quarantine. The town police have registered a case.
According to an online survey, conducted by citizen engagement platform LocalCircles, there has been 166 per cent increase in the number of Indians complaining of anxiety from lockdown 1.0 to unlock 1.0.
Experts say there is every likelihood of stress rising, depression and anxiety around Covid-19. While the immediate need is to address the infection, an unaddressed need is the stress both in the community and among health workers.
There are simple solutions though that can go a long way in relieving stress and anxiety – sticking to a routine, exercise, eating and sleeping healthy, staying connected with people via calls and video call, spending time learning new skills, catching up on reading or listening to music, smiling and waving at other members of the community.
