GIVE YOUR OPINION IN THE FOLLOWING STUDENTS RESPONSE TO THE FOLLOWIG QUESTION
in your opinion, what are the three most damaging consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and why?
COVID 19 Consequences
In my opinion, I feel that there are many damaging consequences of the COVID 19 pandemic. However, there are three that I feel are important because it affects society in all dimensions; Mental health, economic, and substance use/abuse. This consequence affected many people regardless if they had COVID or not. Knowing that it is a very contagious disease and having to be in lockdown to protect oneself and everyone was hard because the word freedom was out the window. Covid was a contributor factor for depression, anxiety and post traumatic- stress disorder (PTSD) (Del Rio, C., Collins, L. F., & Malani, P., 2020). Mental health problems were more prevalent in young adults ages 18-24 (74.9%) and 25-44 (51.9%) (Hlavinka, E., 2020). This affected their quality of life because obtaining medical care for those problems can be an economic burden, especially if a person is insured. Not treating those problems can undoubtedly lead to more significant issues in the long run. With all the mental health problems, the index of substance use/abuse also went up. These substances being one of the most common; opiates (e.g., heroin), synthetic opioids, and methamphetamine (Zaami, S., Marinelli, E., & Var, M., 2020). With COVID 19, the economy went down significantly (Blake, P., & Wadhwa, D. 2020). Many businesses had to lay off people, which contributed to financial problems in our society. Even though there was numerous help for people with low income that meet the standards to receive assistance from the government, there are people who didnt meet the criteria to qualify but still struggle to meet needs (Del Rio, C., Collins, L. F., & Malani, P., 2020). When I think of COVID 19, what comes to my mind is a stock ff dominos. COVID being the main factor for many consequences that it will take time to recover.
