Social support and anxiety in relation to Covid-19

Hälsa & medicin
Samhälle & ekonomi

The pandemic of Covid-19 have raised a variety of questions. Some of these relate to the large inequality in both morbidity and mortality that has been evident even in high income countries with extensive welfare systems. Still, there are indications that even the prevalence of indirect adverse effects of this straining situation is unequally distributed in the population.

About the seminar

In the present seminar we will discuss the potential role of social support and network in relation to anxiety during the pandemic. With support from School of Public Health and Community Medicine we had the opportunity to collaborate in the special survey on Covid-19 set up by the SOM-institute at the University of Gothenburg that was distributed in a general-population based sample in 2020. The focus today will be on the questions around anxiety for oneself, for ones peers, and for the society as a whole.
