Abstract

The Corona Virus disease, better distinguished as Covid-19, led to a global pandemic that has affected our lives in ways more than one. The fear of getting infected, unexpected lockdowns, implementation of the work from home policy and online classes is affecting the psychological well-being of every one of us. Following this context, this study aims to evaluate the mental well-being of the adult population dwelling in Mumbai: the area which is worst hit by the pandemic in India. This study was conducted with the help of a survey. As a consequence of this pandemic, exponential growth in cases of anxiety, depression and several other neurological symptoms among individuals have been observed. The authors also discuss the other Neurological manifestations of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These findings scrupulously emphasize the importance of monitoring the mental well-being of individuals and providing necessary psychological intervention and other coping methods during these pandemic led times.
