How to deal with a panic attack during the Covid-19 pandemic?


The confinement situation amid the Covid-19 pandemic, entirely unprecedented, brings its share of daily stress. Continuous news updates, with their litany of more or less alarming information, from the number of deaths to experimental treatments whose effectiveness is uncertain, and the elusive vaccine, all against the backdrop of confinement, a disruption of the daily routine, and uncertainties about the future, create the perfect mix for experiencing anxiety or, worse, a panic attack. While managing the urgency and controlling the crisis related to Covid-19 has been a priority for the government from the start, addressing the psychological consequences is also looming on the horizon.

Living through an anxiety or panic attack is always unpleasant, potentially traumatic, and may even develop into a chronic condition.
