The covid-19 restrictions led to more people feeling downhearted or depressed, according to a new CSO report.

The CSO's Social Impact of Covid Survey for November looked at well being and lifestyle under level 5 restrictions.

It found 7 out of ten people thought they were appropriate measures to manage Covid 19.

However, more than one in three people, 35.6 per cent, who responded to the survey rated their overall all life satisfaction as low.

That compares to 29.6 per cent in April and 8.7 per cent in 2018.

The percentage of respondents that felt downhearted or depressed ‘All’ or ‘Most of the time’ in the four-week period prior to interview doubled between April and November 2020, from 5.5% to 11.5%.

However, 39 per cent believe that within the next 12 months, their lives will return to something like it was before the onset of the Covid 19 crisis while over 45 per cent believe it will take one or two years.
