Young people's anxiety levels nearly doubled during first Covid-19 lockdown, study says

A study found that the amount of young people with anxiety nearly doubled during the early phases of the pandemic.

(CNN)The early stages of the coronavirus pandemic and the first Covid-19 lockdown caused the number of young people with anxiety to nearly double, according to a study from the University of Bristol.

The study, released Tuesday, found that the number of people with anxiety jumped from 13% to 24% in young people between the ages of 27 and 29, and that number was higher than their parents.
Even when lockdown restrictions began to ease in June, the researchers found, anxiety levels remained high and they said they expect that to continue this winter.
