The Psychological Effects of Lockdowns

PicsArt_01-19-10.52.21
The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically affected society in many different ways. Many countries have enforced lockdowns to lower the number of Coronavirus cases. These lockdowns have a significant effect on one's environment, income, and especially mental health.  Due to the Coronavirus, many people have become unemployed. Unemployment can cause much stress by itself. Worrying about making ends meet, paying your bills, and worrying about making it through the week can cause much stress.  In addition to that, these people are stuck at home with their families and kids. The kindergartens and schools are closed during a lockdown; therefore, the parents are...

For many people this means finding activites for their kids, homeshooling, and finding ways to enjoy the Holidays and newyears.  Every winter (regardless of the Coronavirus or the lockdown), people tend to stay home and not go outside because of the cold weather. While many people prefer the summer when they can go outside and enjoy the fresh air, winter has many benefits. Winter can be a very warm and happy time of the year. Many families snuggle up with sweaters and blankets while drinking hot cocoa and watching a nice...

Holiday Lockdown

As Israel approaches its second lockdown, let us take a look at lockdowns and their effects. Lockdowns have been shown to significantly lower the R0 (the mathematical term that indicates how contagious an infectious disease is) (by 81% on average), and always lowered it to less than 1. However, it should be noted that new cases generally continue to grow until 10-20 days after the lockdowns are imposed, albeit more slowly. So, while being an effective short-term tool if used for a long enough period of time, it is by no means a cure for the disease. If the lockdown lasts...
