Covid-19 survivors may be at risk of PTSD, experts warn

Jun 30, 2020 14:00 IST

The Covid-19 Trauma Response Working Group, led by the University College London, has urged that all survivors must be screened for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). According to health experts, patients who were hospitalised and required intensive care to recover, could be specially at risk of developing mental health issues due to the trauma associated with battling the disease. The research group found that people who were seriously ill with Covid-19 felt panicky while going out alone, after being discharged from the hospital.
