Hong Kong, anxiety, and stress as in war zones
About one in three adults who lives in Hong Kong refers to the symptoms of the disorder post-traumatic stress disorder (Ptsd). The cause? Months of social unrest, often violent, that have seen hundreds of thousands of people poured out into the street and protest against the chinese government. To reveal it is a study of the university of Hong Kong, published in the Lancet.

The analysis also found that one adult in 10 has symptoms of depression, given that, according to the researchers, is "similar to that observed in the population living in areas where there are no wars or terrorist attacks." The prevalence of Ptsd symptoms "was 6 times higher compared to the data collected in the last major protests of the Occupy movement in 2014, from about 5% to march 2015, to nearly 32% in September-November 2019", shows the research. This increase corresponds to a total of 1.9 million inhabitants, with symptoms from Ptsd in a metropolis of 7.4 million.
