STUDY: 1 in 4 adults experienced loss due to Covid-19
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KAIT) - A new study from researchers at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences has found that one in four U.S. adults has experienced the loss of a family member or close friend due to Covid-19.
A news release from UAMS said that other studies showed that those who lost a loved one to Covid-19 have also suffered prolonged or complicated grief. This is causing the grievers to experience increased chances of physical health issues and higher rates of disability, medication use, hospitalization, and depressive symptoms.
