The coronavirus made us all sicker.
Even if we never got the virus. A new report from UW Health says the virus hurt people’s health by keeping them out of urgent care, away from doctors’ offices, and generally sitting around the house more. The report says everything from depression to cases of diabetes increased during the coronavirus outbreak. Researchers say the number of people suffering from anxiety tripled between 2019 and 2020, the number of people suffering from depression jumped four-fold.
