Obsessive-compulsive disorder patients and their well-being during lockdown caused due to COVID-19 pandemic
Covid-19, a virus caused by the novel coronavirus that was initially identified on December 2019, in Wuhan city of China is currently affecting more than 210 territories, states and countries raising distress, panic and increasing anxiety in individuals exposed to the (actual or supposed) peril of the virus across the globe. Fundamentally, these concerns ascend with all infections, including those of flu and other agents, and the same worldwide safeguards are compulsory and suggested for protection and the prevention of further diffusion. However, the lockdown due to Covid-19 became an exclusive threat, which has added to panic and stress in masses which can lead to several mental health issues like anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder as well as individual’s wellbeing and many more psychosocial issues which should be contained immediately.
