Impact of Pandemic (2020) on Indian Population and the Role of Spirituality
Coronavirus pandemic has caused rapid changes across the world with various nation states enforcing lockdown and mandating social distancing which has resulted in the serious effects on the psychological and physical health of the general population. The current study attempts to investigate the age and gender differences in the Impact of Global Pandemic (COVID-19) and the level of Depression, Anxiety and Stress, along with their relationship with Spirituality. The sample consisted of 200 individuals including 97 participants (48.5%) aged between 15-24 years (Youth) and 103 participants (51.5%) aged between 25-64 years (working age). Out of the overall sample, 98 (49%) were women and 102 (51%) were men. The results of the study suggested that critical gender related differences in terms of the impact of pandemic, while no significant age-related differences were found in the impact of global pandemic and level of Depression, Anxiety and Stress. A positive correlation was found between the impact of global pandemic and level of Depression, Anxiety and Stress. However, no significant correlation of spirituality has been found with that of the impact of global pandemic, level of depression, anxiety and stress.
