Recent statistics from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) found that 51.3% of UK adults said that the coronavirus pandemic is affecting their wellbeing, while 46.9% of adults reported high levels of anxiety.
There could be many reasons for this spike in anxiety such as job uncertainties, workers feeling isolated due to separation from family members and fears of contracting the virus itself. Elsewhere, the study found that 22.9% said that the pandemic was affecting their household incomes. So, there are many factors that could be contributing to a deterioration of wellbeing at the moment.
