A Correlational Study of Impact of COVID-19 on Stress

Prof. Mahrukh Mirza, Aaiman Siddiqui

The COVID-19 outbreak impacted people from all walks of life, with people being urged to self-quarantine in their homes to prevent the virus from spreading. The lockdown had a significant impact on mental health, contributing in psychological issues such as anger, stress, and depression. A study titled ?A Correlational study of impact of COVID-19 on stress was conducted with the aim of studying the impact of COVID-19 on stress. A total of 306 responses were collected using convenient random sampling and a self-administered questionnaire as data collection tool. Data was analysed using descriptive statistics, independent t-test and ANOVA. The factors selected for the purpose of the study are gender, education level, family size and marital status, the p value of which are 0.025, 0.123, 0.001 and 0.025 respectively. Analysis of assessment of COVID-19 on the basis of gender showed that there is significant difference between the stress level of males and females. Analysis on the basis of education level concluded that education level of people is not significantly associated with COVID-19 and that the size of the family is directly associated with the stress caused due to COVID-19 and the marital status is also significantly associated with stress related to COVID-19. Since this study is new in the context of COVID-19, it holds importance and its results can be generalised. Similar studies in a different geographical setting may be recommended for further studies.
