In the United States, according to medical records, one in 17 patients who had a coronavirus infection (CVI) had anxiety, insomnia, and depression. Therefore, this risk exceeds other complications by half. Similarly, the researchers found that psychiatric patients have a 65% risk of developing Covid-19. In their opinion, this is due to the physical condition of psychiatric patients and medication. However, these patients should not be considered at high risk for CVI. 


Professor of psychiatry at the University of Oxford Paul Harrison, lead author of the study, said that people who have had Covid-19 "will be at greater risk of mental health problems." Therefore, according to this study, you should not ignore psychological disorders and resolve them in time. Do not forget that the state of mental health is directly related to the development of deviations in physical health.
