Tuka Y. Hassan*, Salah Al-Bundi and Jawad K. Al-Diwan

ABSTRACT

Background: COVID-19 is associated with mental and neurological manifestations. Anxiety and depression appear to be common among people hospitalized with COVID-19. They are already exposed to all the harmful effects of COVID-19 in society and once infected with the virus they feel helpless. The negative experiences specific to individuals who are infected with the covid-19 virus cannot be neglected. The complex emotions a COVID-19 positive hospitalized patient faces are fear about the outcome of their illness, social stigma, fear of infecting others and fear of death are all of grave concern and can push them into depression and even self- harm and suicides. Aim of study: to assess the prevalence of psychological problems among COVID- 19 patients admitted in an isolated ward in acute phase. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out at Dhari Al-Fayaad general hospital with an isolated word for COVID 19 patients with moderate severity from 1st November 2021 to 31th January 2022. A total of 105 COVID-19 patients were participated in this study. Data were collected by direct interview of patients using structured questionnaire that included sociodemographic information and Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale - 21 (DASS-21). The required ethical approval was obtained. Descriptive statistics of categorical data were expressed by a number of cases and percentage. Results: Mean age of patients was 39.48±16.504 years; with male to female ratio of 1:1.5. There were 87 (82.9%) patients with psychological problems; out of them, 41.4% have extremely severe psychological problems. Extremely severe psychological impact of COVID 19 was significantly associated with patients below 40 years old, females, and patients with higher education; (P=0.026, P=0.014, and P<0.001 respectively). Conclusion: Hospitalized COVID-19 patients have shown a high rate of psychological problems in acute phase.
