It is not only the economic consequences that affect the French. Their morale is significantly affected by the pandemic of Covid-19. Thursday, November 19, the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, insisted a lot on the mental health of citizens. “When we look at the figures, at the moment, we see that one in five French people suffer from anxiety or depression.“, explains journalist and doctor Damien Mascret, on the 19/20 set, Friday 20 November.
At the start of confinement, this rate of depression was very high and then it decreased, because the population has adapted to the situation. It then stabilized during the summer to start rising again in the fall. “This is what worries the government today, we see that it has started to rise again, and even quite clearly since we are now at 20% of depressive states.“, judge the doctor.
