Coronavirus lockdown: Youth is twice as likely suffering from loneliness than older adults | The Times of India


- Advertisment -

As per an analysis by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), more than 50 per cent of the people in the age group of 16-24 felt lonely during the coronavirus lockdown, which is much higher when compared to baby boomers (55-69 age group), where less than a quarter (24.1 per cent) reported loneliness owing to the lockdown.

To conduct the study, 5,260 adults were asked about “chronic loneliness” while 2,440 out of the group were asked if they felt lonely during the lockdown in the past seven days. The data which was collected between April 3 to May 3, highlights another connection of experiencing loneliness with age. In addition to younger age groups, 50 per cent of those aged 70 and over also felt lonely during the lockdown.
