Risk Of Relapse And Alcohol Consumption Due To COVID-19 Unemployment

COVID-19 a big challenge to the medical industry to identify its nature and invent a new vaccination. Lakhs and lakhs of people are affected by this “Coronavirus” and only a few are getting recovered, having its origin from Bats. The symptoms and effects of this virus are first identified in China, later it spreads throughout the world. A big threat to the world and claims many lives worldwide. Even this has not let out the economic status of a country. All the stock market graphs were going steeper, which results in a lot of Coronavirus unemployment in the preceding months.

COVID-19 Or Coronavirus Unemployment

The world is in pandemic condition and everybody is staying home, to support the lockdown by the governments. Many of the laborers in industries have been given lay off for a particular period of time, schools are not working, no public transports, supermarkets, malls, amusement parks all the things were shut down, this leads to more unemployment ratio. This unexpected pandemic and Coronavirus unemployment push people into more stress.

Work From Home

While some may have a piece of relaxation in this time period, without having layoff. Many of them were given opportunities to work from home. But while looking from outside it might look like they are relaxed, but they too have many problems like handling house chores, kids and elders at home along with the work schedule, some may even reside in remote areas where the internet connection is very low. So working with all these hurdles they might have the fear of whether they will receive the paycheck on time or not. So the people who are working from home will be in another kind of stress and more commonly in this pandemic stress is what 90% of people are facing in the world.

Risk Factors

Many risk factors are there when we consider this pandemic situation. Some may need to fill the blank space available in this lockdown period, so they may want or unwantedly indulge in these kinds of abusing activities and make the situation very worse. Always these addictions people after consuming drugs or alcohol are uncontrollable sometimes, they won’t listen to things and they might go out during this lockdown getting more chances of catching the virus. There is no such evidence that addicts can have some severe drawbacks while treating this virus, but those who have low immune systems and already have some lung disorders will have less chance of recovery or their recovery rate from COVID-19 will be slow. 

Increase In Alcohol Consumption (Coronavirus Unemployment )

As we discussed earlier the stress level in this pandemic time is more. Many people will be sitting idle at home, they will be more tempted, some may feel bored and they really want to try some new thing and have fun, so just playfully without knowing the future consequences, they might start drinking. With the availability of more time, lack of employment ( Coronavirus unemployment), people who were already addicted to alcohol may be at severe risk to get more and more addicted. This may lead to severe health problems, issues inside the family and a lot more.

Increase In Relapse

There might be 200% more chance for people falling into the relapse trap again. Many addiction recovery centers were closed and even if they provide classes online, there is no guarantee that they will attend those classes strictly. There might be more triggers in and around, more possibilities for lack of medicine. Without a proper framework and guidance, many will again fall as a trap for relapse.

Maintaining Recovery Through Pandemic And Coronavirus Unemployment

Many see this lockdown and global pandemic as a threat, but even in our tough situations, we can think of more positives. We have lots of time now and we can do a lot of things in this beautiful time, moreover a time for ourselves. So think wisely and schedule your daily routine in a healthier way.
