A new study from the United Kingdom found that people who were sick with COVID-19 had a significant chance of developing a psychiatric disorder after recovering. According to the reportTrusted Source published in The Lancet on November 9, 18 percent of COVID-19 patients developed a mental health issue — like depression, anxiety, or dementia — within 3 months of diagnosis. Their risk was doubled compared to people who didn’t have COVID-19. Doctors have suspected that COVID-19 was linked to higher rates of mental health problems. Based on the study, nearly 20 percent of COVID-19 patients developed a mental health issue within 3 months of diagnosis. My concern is, is Covid-19 the highest factor contributing to the rise of mental health issues in the population?
