However, distancing also has its side effects because it leads to major changes in lifestyle, business, education, health care, participation in public events and social interactions, which individuals find extremely difficult to tolerate, as shown by the experiments of social psychologists. Loneliness and depression can become a real problem if during social distancing an individual does not communicate with others, which requires each individual to take care of mental health.

As the pandemic continues, and suggests a long duration, researchers around the world are trying to quantify its impact on mental health and planning a brighter future.
