Drowning just below the surface: The socioeconomic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic

A report that highlights the secondary impacts of the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has widened the gap of socioeconomic inequalities and exacerbated existing needs and vulnerabilities. The pandemic intersected with existing crises such as natural disasters, conflict, poverty, displacement, and food insecurity – which has ultimately impacted and intensified the mental health and psychosocial needs on a global level. An increase in stress, anxiety and symptoms of depression have been reported in this research, which could be linked to factors such as people’s fear of losing their jobs or to feelings of isolation and loneliness.
