Study Reveals The Toll On Mental Health Pandemic Took On Italian Healthcare Workers

Italy was extremely hard hit by the novel coronavirus COVID-19, early on in the global pandemic.

According to UPI, a new study shows Italian frontline healthcare workers treating COVID-19 patients were hard hit as well.

Nearly half of them have experienced symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder during the outbreak there.

Almost 25% suffered from depression and roughly 20% reported symptoms of anxiety as the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, continued to spread.

In addition to high rates of PTSD, depression and anxiety, more than 8% reported insomnia.

Nearly 22% said they suffered from 'high perceived stress.'
