Abstract: COVID-19 is a global concern affecting Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). This pandemic led to disruption of education, at all levels, whether primary or higher education Institutes. Studies have shown that the stress experienced by medical students is far greater than that experienced by other university students. Public health emergencies may affect the health, safety, and well-being of both individuals (causing, for example, insecurity, confusion, emotional isolation, and stigma) and communities (owing to economic loss, work and school closures, inadequate resources for medical response, and deficient distribution of necessities). These effects may translate into a range of emotional reactions (such as distress or psychiatric conditions), unhealthy behaviours (such as excessive substance use), and noncompliance with public health directives (such as home confinement and vaccination) in people who contract the disease and in the general population.1 This cross-sectional study aimed to examine medical student?s attitudes, anxiety, and overall mental being during the COVID-19 pandemic through questionnaire prepared by the authors which consisted of questions from various mental health scoring systems currently being used around the world.
