Coronavirus increases frustration. Measures to combat the Covid-19 outbreak are taken to protect people. However, psychiatrists and psychologists argue that the risks that restrictions pose to society and mental health should not be ignored.
The air temperature, which suddenly increased after weeks of standing snow in Berlin, led to the influx of streets and parks, the router who did not leave their homes due to coronavirus measures.
Whereas in Germany it has been for four months, with the exception of the stipulated exceptional protrusion restriction.
The parks and the vast majority of people on the streets do not wear masks.
It can be seen that constraints are no longer working, that people are not obeying them.
NUMBER OF CASE INCREASES
The increase in the number of Covid-19 cases confirms that the rate of compliance with the measures has actually declined. Experts warn that Germany is heading for a third wave.
Meanwhile, the rate of transmission of virus variants is also increasing. The most striking is the UK variant B.1.1.7 of the coronavirus. and this raises concerns even more.
PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR RESTRICTIONS
Professor Rolf van Dick, a social psychologist at Goethe University. He said, “All the data and research results we have shown that the vast majority still obey the rules… But I think that if the restrictions continue, the minority who does not comply with these rules will increase.”
According to a public opinion survey released by public television ARD on February 19. The number of people in Germany who think that the Covid-19 restrictions have gone too far increased by 5 percent compared to two weeks ago, to 27 percent.
In the previous survey. The rate of those who said that the measures taken were not sufficient also declined in the last survey dropping from 24 percent to 16 percent.
Coronavirus increases frustration “THE FEEL OF BURNOUT”
This reflects the lowest public support for the measures that began about a year ago.
According to psychologist Stephan Grünewald. He is part of the North Rhine-Westphalia State’s advisory council of experts to combat the epidemic. The lack of long-term perspective created a “feeling of burnout”, especially in winter.
