    We may experience stress, anxiety, fear, sadness, and loneliness as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mental illnesses, such as anxiety and depression, can deteriorate. When compared to surveys conducted prior to the pandemic, surveys show a significant increase in the number of U.S. adults reporting symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression during the pandemic. Some people have increased their alcohol or drug consumption in the hopes of coping with their fears about the pandemic. In reality, these drugs can exacerbate anxiety and depression. If people with substance use disorders get COVID-19, their outcomes are likely to be worse, especially if they are addicted to tobacco or opioids. This is because these addictions can impair lung function and weaken the immune system, leading to chronic diseases like heart disease and lung disease, which raise the risk of serious COVID-19 complications.

    Do not worry about this Covid-19 thing, if you do, you will just add up to the rising number of people with mental health issues. Live your life normally with all the freedom that we have. Think positively so that you will not attract negative ones including this greatest hoax.

    Covid-19 is a thing to be taken seriously; however, the high survivability rate of 99% is something that made it not to worry about. Though many people feel the other way around, we can't avoid the fact that leads to the rising Mental health issues brought about by this Covid-19 pandemic.

    To add, the restrictions placed by the government and all its mandates also contribute to this. People are already tired of this pandemic and it's just getting worse.
