How to manage pandemic anxiety

Since the coronavirus outbreak, reports of anxiety have increased, especially among physicians. Physicians face numerous stressors, including fears of contracting the coronavirus, concerns about potentially infecting loved ones, PPE shortages, testing delays, and frequently making quick decisions with limited information.

Common symptoms of anxiety are increased worrying about one’s self and/or loved ones, difficulty sleeping, difficulty eating, poor concentration, increased heart rate, hyperventilation, and struggling to control worrying.

Christine Tran-Boynes is a psychiatrist.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “5 ways to manage anxiety during the coronavirus pandemic.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2020/03/5-ways-to-manage-anxiety-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic.html)
