How Corona makes depressed

Currently, more than 5 million people across Germany suffer from depression, some of which is caused by Corona

New mutations, rising incidences and a slow-moving vaccination campaign are leading to more and more resentment and psychological stress among the population. Confidence that the Corona pandemic will soon be overcome is steadily waning. Constant caution and the permanent tension and fear of a Corona infection and one’s own existence are stressful

As a result of the corona pandemic, everyday life has entered a state of emergency, leading to an increase in corona depression. Studies have shown that three out of four people feel psychologically burdened.

Most importantly, pre-existing depression has been exacerbated by the Corona situation. There are various reasons for this. One important factor is domestic and social isolation. As a result of fewer contacts and physical closeness, those affected become increasingly lonely. Furthermore, the care situation for mentally ill people has also deteriorated since the start of the pandemic, as many therapies only take place online and for many this is not a complete substitute for face-to-face appointments

Home offices and the restriction of freedom of movement also result in a loss of everyday structure, which can exacerbate depression. The fear of not knowing when we will get the virus under control, when we will be able to see and hold our family and friends again without fear of infecting ourselves or someone else, can also trigger or intensify depression.

Depression often has nonspecific symptoms at the beginning, which can indicate various illnesses. Symptoms may accumulate and intensify as the illness progresses. These include:

  • Headache and pain in the limbs
  • Gastrointestinal complaints
  • Lack of energy up to constant exhaustion
  • Rapid irritability
  • Increased listlessness, bad mood
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Isolation and loneliness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Suicidal thoughts


The causes of corona depression are manifold. In depression, there is an increased awareness and focus on everything negative in life, including worries and fears about the corona virus

  • Social isolation and loneliness due to contact restrictions and lack of physical contact
  • Fear of infecting oneself and others
  • Fear of bad courses of disease
  • Existential fears
  • Lack of daily structure due to homeschooling and home office
  • Permanent tension
  • Deterioration of the supply situation
  • Lack of exercise
