Pandemic’s effect on global mental health revealed in new poll

A poll of 29,000 people around the world has shown the profound effect the Covid-19 pandemic had on people’s mental health.

36 per cent of people globally said they felt better now than before the pandemic, while 27 per cent said they felt worse, a poll commissioned by the BBC revealed.

Over 30 countries were surveyed. People in Vietnam and India were most likely to say they felt better post-pandemic, while in Japan, South Korea, and Hong Kong they were most likely to say the opposite.

The poll also suggests the effect of the pandemic on wellbeing is more pronounced in women and young people.
