From CBC News: “An epidemiologist says social isolation could lead to a range of mental health issues as people face the prospect of living under the current COVID-19 restrictions for months.
Sandro Galea, dean at Boston University’s School of Public Health, says the isolation as well as the uncertainty about how long it will last and how the pandemic will play out can all contribute to increased anxiety.
‘We humans are ultimately social. We’re social creatures and we do need interaction — physical and social — with others.'”
