Coronavirus Survivors Are Likely To Experience PTSD

Coronavirus Survivors Are Likely To Experience PTSD

According to recent reports, Coronavirus survivors are likely to experience PTSD. Therefore, anyone who were seriously ill in hospital with coronavirus should to be seen by a doctor to understand if they are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, according to leading doctors.

Who Led This Report?

The Covid Trauma Response Working Group, who are led by University College London, have stated that people who have been in intensive care are most at risk of getting PTSD.

Over 100,000 people have been treated in hospital for the virus and all of these people should have regular check-ups at their GP to ensure they are not suffering from any mental health issues following their Coronavirus diagnosis.

The working group highlighted research which showed 30% of patients who had suffered severe illnesses in infectious disease outbreaks in the past had gone on to develop PTSD. In addition to this, depression and anxiety problems were also common.

BBC Report

Today, the BBC released an article that gives insight to a Coronavirus survivor’s experience.”Tracy is just one of many people who has been left with psychological scars from her coronavirus experience.

She was admitted to Whittington Hospital in north London in March and spent more than three weeks there – one of which was in intensive care.”It was like being in hell. I saw people dying, people with the life being sucked from them. The staff all have masks on and all you saw was eyes – it was so lonely and frightening.”

Since being discharged in April the 59-year-old has been struggling to sleep because of the thought she will die and she has constantly suffered flashbacks. She is now receiving counselling. “It has been really difficult. Physically I have been so tired. I’m beginning to recover, but the mental side of it is very hard to deal with.

“I have a good support network of family and friends and I’m a positive person – and I am struggling. I think there will be plenty of people who are in a similar situation, if not worse.”
