Zoya Marinova, 自由科学作家 在Kolabtree上，写了如何应对COVID-19大流行期间的压力。
The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has rapidly spread worldwide, since the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) first emerged in China in December 2019. The fast spread of the disease, its severe course in a subset of patients, and the lack of a vaccine and specific medications necessitated unprecedented public 健康 measures. What effects does the COVID-19 pandemic have on emotional wellbeing and how to cope with them?
The symptoms of COVID-19 may develop 2-14 days after the exposure to the virus and may range from mild to severe. They may include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, unexplained loss of taste or smell, chills with shaking, headache, and muscle aches. 
The unprecedented public health measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic have led to changes in the daily routines and social isolation of numerous individuals. Financial concerns and uncertainty about the future have also affected many. In combination, these factors may cause significant emotional distress, and the reactions to this unprecedented situation vary greatly. Individuals may experience fear, irritability, difficulties concentrating, exacerbation of chronic medical conditions, disruption in appetite, or insomnia. In a recent study on 1210 respondents from 194 Chinese cities, over 50% of the participants assessed the psychological effects of the COVID-19 outbreak as severe or moderate. Moreover, a substantial number of respondents reported moderate to severe depressive symptoms (16.5%), 焦虑 symptoms (28.8%), or stress levels (8.1%). 威胁感和不确定性是当前形势下的一个重要因素，两者都是造成痛苦程度的原因。
管理好信息流，做好防范措施。 In a stressful situation, avoiding compulsive checking of the news, especially during vulnerable times of day such as before bedtime, may help you relax.5 但是，掌握相关的健康信息，并遵循明确的预防措施，对减轻不测感也很重要。
实行自我保健。 A healthy diet, enough sleep, and physical 活动 are especially important during a stressful and uncertain time. 即使是适度的身体活动也会对情绪产生积极影响，有助于缓解情绪困扰。
