Levels will make us anxious and depressed: The harmful effects of new restrictions could affect mental health and increase domestic abuse, officials warn
- The review warned of spikes in alcohol consumption, anxiety, and depression
- Working at home can lead to back problems and accidents around the house
- In adults, physical activity is lower and alcohol consumption is higher
The animal system will have detrimental mental health effects and increase domestic abuse and self-harm, officials warned yesterday.
A government impact assessment of the levels warned of spikes in alcohol use, anxiety, and depression.
Working from home can also lead to back problems and accidents at home, the document said.
In summary, the paper summarizes the following: “The health effects extend well beyond death and suffering from Covid-19 itself, but are also due to the effects on other health services, the effects of limitations on our mental health and physical wellbeing connections between economy, disadvantage and health outcomes. “

It warns of “negative effects on mental health, less physical activity, more accidents at home and more diseases of the musculoskeletal system”.
Most worryingly, it also predicts increases in anxiety, depression and self-harm in children, as well as increases in child malnutrition.
“New data from the March-April embargo period has shown increasing evidence that interventions … including educational closures are likely to adversely affect the mental health and well-being of children and adolescents,” the report said.
For adults, physical activity will be less and alcohol consumption will be higher. Unemployment and money problems would cause physical and mental health problems.
The data showed a “sharp rise” in fear in March fueled by fears of money, unemployment and access to food.
Loneliness can also cause health problems. The document states, “The higher the level, the greater the likely impact on isolation, although care and support bubbles do provide some mitigation.
“The need for social interaction can be greater in difficult times.”
It is said that the number of higher-risk drinkers increased during the initial lockdown and predicted alcohol consumption would rise again.

The health impact of economic issues is another problem. “There is evidence that a prolonged, long-term economic downturn would have negative health consequences,” it said. ‘The relationship between deprivation, health consequences, comorbidities [having more than one illness] and risk factors are well documented.
“There are persistent differences in life expectancy and healthy life expectancy between the least and most deprived areas.”
Home workers are more likely to experience neck and back pain when using furniture that is not intended for use in an office.
While people cooked more during the initial lockdown, there was also a “marked spike” in snacking, which could also affect their health, according to the report.
