Effect of Gender and Age on the Anxiety Level on Village People-Case Study
Pawan Singh Rawat
Abstract: The study examined the relationship between the COVID-19 anxiety ratings of the villagers and their gender and age. Everywhere in the world, the COVID-19 illness is extremely severe, but rural communities are particularly affected. Because there are few resources available for raising awareness of mental health. For the residents of the block, the dearth of specialists and basic medical services is a major issue. The COVID-19 epidemic is also spreading a widespread feeling of disquiet, anxiety, and concern, which is contributing to an increase in mental health issues. There are only four psychiatrists available for a population of more than 10 million people spread out across 13 districts in Uttarakhand, according to an examination of state-level health care statistics. Because everyone is so unfamiliar with this illness, people start to get scared. Humans are affected by this virus in more ways than simply their health; it can also affect how they behave, how their minds work, and whether they start to worry. Determining the psychological effects of COVID-19 on rural Narayan Bager Chamoli people in Uttarakhand is the goal of the current study. A random sample of 120 people, comprising 60 men and 60 women of all ages, was taken from my study area in Narayan Bagerchamoli. The information on anxiety level was gathered using the comprehensive anxiety scale developed by Sinha & Sinha in 1995. According to the study's findings, men and women's anxiety levels varied considerably according to their age and gender. The findings also suggest that motivating individuals to avoid COVID-19 needs them to adopt sensible safety measures or to refrain from overanalyzing situations.
