Covid-19 pandemic could cause an increase in prevalence of PTSD

By Victoria Smith

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can occur in those who have witnessed or experienced a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war, rape or violent personal assault.

As the intensity of the psychological impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is rising globally, GlobalData epidemiologists expect a significant increase in the total prevalence of PTSD, with the risk for women being twice as high.
