Corona virus panic mental health protection
Steps should be taken in mental health during Coronavirus panic
The outbreak of the corona virus has plunged the world into uncertainty and the news of the epidemic continues to unsettle people. It also increases the health risks of people with mental health problems such as NGT and OCD. The World Health Organization (WHO) has advised people on what to do to protect the body as well as mental health during the corona virus epidemic.
It is normal to be concerned about the news of an outbreak of the corona virus, but the WHO has advised that it does not affect mental health. They say, refrain from watching, reading and listening to news that may make you anxious and worried. Prepare to know what to do to protect yourself and your loved ones. Learn to update information at specific times.
On the other hand, those who have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) are simply extra careful about cleanliness. They may become more anxious to avoid Covid-19 infections by repeatedly washing their hands with soap, not touching their mouths, and staying clean. Especially when you are in quarantine at home, you have plenty of time on your hands to worry.
In this situation you have to keep in touch with other people. Find loved ones. You can read books and watch movies to spend time with that. In addition to eating the right food, if there is an opportunity, the body needs to be sunbathed and exercised.
Remember, this epidemic cannot be dealt with by panicking or worrying. Conversely mental health will deteriorate.
