Mental Illness Risk in Covid: Research is still going on in many countries regarding the corona epidemic affecting the whole world for the last two years. Along with finding medicine for corona, scientists are also studying the changes in the health of people who have recovered from it. Now a new study conducted in Britain has revealed that people are at increased risk of mental illness, fatigue, and insomnia after being found to be Kovid positive in PCR test. Researchers from the University of Manchester analyzed the health records of 2,26,521 people who were infected with Kovid between February and December 2020 in the country.

The findings of this study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Network Open, show that there was a six-fold increase in the number of people coming to doctors with fatigue problems, who were tested for Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) in Kovid. were found positive.

Compared to non-infected people, there was a three-fold increase in the problem of insomnia in people found to be Kovid positive. Such people also reached the doctors, who had never had such a complaint before.

What happened in the study

Complications of mental illness increased in 83 percent of people who were found to be Kovid positive in the PCR test. However, researchers have a dilemma whether Kovid-19 is also directly causing mental illness. This may be possible because due to the epidemic, mental stress has increased.

Dr. Matthias Pierce of the University of Manchester says, 'Fatigue is directly a result of Kovid-19 and the risk of insomnia in this disease also increases.'
