While I am sure the perception of this has caused issues in some people; you can still do things outside of the house only the ultra entitled view this as a "house arrest" because they cant get drunk down the pub.

In fact walks in nature are deemed to be v good for your mental health, drinking; not so much

This story has as much scientific credibility as a lecture on 5G radiation from David Icke.
I cannot believe the depths the BBC will plumb to bring us our daily dose of fear inducing paranoia.
In fact anxiety, depression, palpitations, mental&physical fatigue and especially psychosis, are all highly likely from over exposure to our State Broadcaster; and will have affected far more people than C19

Was that confirmed by a dr that it was the isolation that made it worse? While there is no empirical evidence yet, that doesnt mean it doesnt exist to suggest that isolation is the cause.

She can't operate technology so after 6 months of complete isolation she now has stage 7. She only wanted to see her family one last time. Now she has no idea who they are

No, you are totally incorrect in everything you say. Lockdowns DO NOT work, and only kick the can down the road, as it has been proved many times by the REAL professionals, and NOT the SAGE cowboys.

Believe me, when it is finally revealed, you will see the severe trouble caused by the insanity of lockdowns far outweigh what covid has ever done.

A small plea on behalf of outside mask wearers. It 's quite difficult to maintain hand hygiene if you are constantly taking off and putting back on a mask. In my case, I am food shopping alongside random people who won't/can't wear masks and don't use the shop sanitizer.. after which I deliver to friends and family. The mask goes on as I enter 1st shop and comes off and into wash when I get home.

Four years of Trump explains the depression. The rest could be coincidence. Sounds like one of 'those' studies, sample size to small to mean much.

Concurrent with this article I experienced both anxiety and depression after having covid. However, this cannot be considered cause and effect. I strongly believe that these health conditions are due to lack of freedom; going swimming, or shopping or to a restaurant could really really help. I'm not saying lockdown is the wrong approach, but it's certainly not helping anyone's mental health.

My mother’s Alzheimer’s worsened drastically last year, mostly due to isolation, despite wonderful carers. I’ve recently had to move her into residential care, way earlier than anticipated. The effects of lockdown will be emerging for years to come yet.

Was that confirmed by a dr that it was the isolation that made it worse? While there is no empirical evidence yet, that doesnt mean it doesnt exist to suggest that isolation is the cause. I just think random punters making assertions like this is pretty dangerous tbh and I'd rather wait for a reputable publication stating this.

The ‘experts’ don’t even know what causes Alzheimer’s (definitively) so we have always had to go on what we know, firstly to fight for a diagnosis, then rather hopeless treatments. I certainly won’t hold my breath for their outcome on this. I know my own mother better than anyone and it was definitely the lack of social interaction that exacerbated her condition.

I think a study of dementia and depression in Covid times related to the deprivations of lockdown is now called for. Humans are by nature social animals, and, like the apes from which they have evolved, if denied physical contact and normal interaction with their own kind, they sicken, pine and often eventually die.

"Don't ignore any vaccine just because its affecting 1 in million "

Don't ignore a vaccine if you do not belong to one of the groups at risk of blood clots.

Not the same thing at all & the point of taking a closer inspection of those at risk.

Curious how UK started its vaccination program first while being among the last to put new vaccine procedures into place.

Care to explain why?

Seems like a rational response when blood clot incidences occur in 1/1,000,000 vaccinated people, while 40 years olds have a 1/1,000 chance of dying if they catch covid.

Or we could run about arguing over the safety of lifeboats while people are drowning

How many times do we have to explain to people like you that some people have had their social connections severed and their livelihoods destroyed by coronavirus restrictions?
Even if you think these restrictions have had positive consequences on balance (which they may or may not), it is important to recognise how unevenly the burden has been placed. Nothing "entitled" about that

Exactly - I couldn't even go and play golf on my own - how stupid is that. Haven't been to a pub in years but restricted from seeing parents and friends and the only activities are going food shopping or a long walk at the risk of being arrested and fined if you stray too far from your home. All for a virus that puts less than 1% of people at risk

A year of, often confused and inconsistent lockdown, with restricted access to friends and family, outdoor sports, socialising and travel to sunny destinations has undoubtedly caused depression at varying levels throughout almost the whole population.
Whether a young child or great-grandparent we now need the freedoms the vaccination programme promised us.

So, "the woke2 dictionary definition is "alert to injustice in society, especially racism." so people being alert to racism and wanting to prevent it gives you depression...

so to make you happier youd want to be racist?

While I am sure the perception of this has caused issues in some people; you can still do things outside of the house only the ultra entitled view this as a "house arrest" because they cant get drunk down the pub.

In fact walks in nature are deemed to be v good for your mental health, drinking; not so much

Look around the world, Sweden, Japan, unlocked states in the USA, no masks, no social distancing, no lockdowns and nothing to worry about.

"Hopefully the Obese take more responsibility for their own health" is it not fair to expect everyone, who is capable, to take care of their own health?

Who are these "thousands of others" you reference? And, even if there were thousands, surely you'd consider these people more unfortunate than those that haven't take care of their health?
