3:33 pm
there was a tweet. i've read at the start of this pandemic as co 19 forces to physically distance from one another. society is at risk of a social recession. a social recession is marked by an increase in loneliness and isolation. it was posted in mid march by a former surgeon general benighted states. doctor vivek murphy, and already by that points entire regions and key cities of some countries had been in lockdown finelli to home. from the start, it was clear that beating this pandemic was going to require sustained physical distancing and quarantine for medics and mental health specialists around the world . another thing was clear to that the locked down to going to reveal the extent of another hidden public health issue. loneliness
3:34 pm
the also should distancing physical distancing. quarantine locked down so fascination more than any other time in recent history. anti social behavior has become part of our global reality because to separate ourselves from one another to stay for long periods of time at home to not meet with friends and family to commit to work or even sit in a restaurant or a t f, a. all of that is quite anti social. it's not how humans a why and why, even though the physical health benefits of the clothing triggered look down to being undeniable, the psychological impact has been inescapable to. oh. italy's experience with corona virus was harrowing. it was one of the 1st european countries to be effected and despite strict look down, it has had more than $36000.00 corona vars related debt. as of october this year,
3:35 pm
in early march after a covered 19 outbreak flare up near her home, 74 year old psychologists, roberta brovio and 4 colleagues, set up a free mental health hotline for long body residence. she began to receive calls immediately for maria cooking for nazi absolutely, clearly for me. ready when or does that make me let me
3:36 pm
know when you get when i spoke to her dad, she was coordinating a network of 200 professional psychologists volunteering their time. during the lockdown made cools from all over italy, from sicily, in the south to iowa. during the far north. they've even received messages from us, far abroad is due by the united states and australia. quick assessing thing, those are 2. 0, you got the noise. they'll see me, campbell, every be going to be fine with me on my of these on the you will not be going to the fabric yak model. i'm not kidding you doesn't foster people don't know if they did play on it, increase the journey or being shot to get
3:37 pm
back to bed. fairly simple that you know, now do you know they're not going to actually develop a career to read the people that it and yeah my, my life. thank a accounting a maintenance issue. and if there's a way that, that, that, it can, i ask how many calls that come through during this interview? can i take you to the final nietzsche? humans have an innate psychological drive to connect with others. what we're learning more and more now is that, that need to connect is physiological to just weeks after the world health organization declared covered 19 global. pandemic researches at the massachusetts institute of technology. mit posted a preliminary report on social isolation and some of the new responses at triggers
3:38 pm
. the findings pointed to one telling conclusion: a need to connect as, as primal or fundamental as i need to eat. just 10 hours of total isolation can leave the brain feeling starved. i spoke with julie and hope that a professor of psychology and neuroscience at brigham young university. know we're not wired to be this. she says that the edge of panic called that sinking sensation in your stomach when you're physically cut off from people, is a biological response that it's evolved in us over millennial throughout human history. and we needed to rely on others or our survival, whether that protection or efficiency in obtaining resources, our brains have adopted to expect others. so when lax, approximate each other's particularly trusted others. in essence, us honest data alert, because now we have to manage the threats in our environment on our the latest
3:39 pm
sites on loneliness shows that acute isolation has physical health repercussions to such as an increase in heart rate and blood pressure, surgeon, stressful minds and internal inflammation according to research published in the cardiovascular medical journal, heart, people who feel lonely, a 29 percent more likely to develop coronary heart disease, and 32 percent more at risk of suffering a stroke. julian has also studied how social isolation impacts mortality. what we were able to find was that being moly, was associated with a 26 for increased risk for death being socially isolated, 29 percent, and living alone, 32 percent. and although there was some relative differences, they weren't significantly different from each other, meaning that both being objectively isolated and that subjective feeling of loneliness, both significantly predict risk earlier. what the suggest is that we need to take
3:40 pm
our relationships seriously for now. for the 1st time in human history, greater numbers of people read all ages or places and living alone in the u. s. for instance, the percentage of single person household has increased from 30 percent in the ninety's sixty's to 28 percent today. in europe, think the highest still with around 38 percent of dutch and nearly 42 percent of german living alone. and in fact, from ecuador to japan. this upward trend is visible all around the world. when the pandemic break one of the catch phrases that caught instant popularity was social distancing. however, when i spoke with cecilia just eric clinton bag, he made an important point about the terminology. it isn't quite accurate and understood what was important about that idea just to helps that i realize right away that there was a problem. because social distance thing is very different from physical distancing
3:41 pm
. actually, people we need to get through the situation, certainly to rebuild afterwards. is social proximity, social solidarity. we need to be looking out for each other, taking care of each other and making sure that we are helping people who have the greatest needs. eric was quick to point out to me that despite the increasing numbers of people living solar, they wouldn't automatically fall under the category of the people most likely to suffer loneliness. people who live alone in ordinary times are actually quite social, an average, and they're more likely than marry people to spend time with friends and neighbors . they go out into public and shared spaces. the problem now is that everyone who lives alone has been forced to be socially isolated for the 1st time ever. and i fear that this has generated a spike of loneliness to and so as much as we're in an economic recession now we're also in a bit of recession with the locked down, limiting travel,
3:42 pm
everything from simple ca meets to long, whole plane journeys and physical distances restricting how close we can get to each other. many people have thought out ways to deal with the social recession. if you're like me and i've been fortunate enough to have access to a laptop or a phone and a good wife fi connection, then technologies been an undeniable benefit. what's that? we chat face time? scott zoom, tick tock. all of these apps and many more have made staying in touch with people so much easier. and yet so many have still felt paid by tend to isolate action. and inc, diety, many of these tools feel very synthetic, right? i thought about the idea that this may be somewhat analogous to where they have been incredibly beneficial in making food more accessible to many more people. but i also come with potential and you know, just like process food mary blindly in the degree to which they are nutritious. so
3:43 pm
do many or beans tools. they still lack that personal touch. you can't reach across the screen and get when. yeah, i think my mom and dad and i really would understand agreement i'm grateful that i can have a conversation with my parents who are in a, in other states on face time, or that i can teach my students and i knew him. you know, here we are doing this interview through our screen, but i think the majority of people at the end of this just can't wait to get back in the life to be in a restaurant or a cafe, or a library, or playground, or a soccer field. at the time being in the states and we feel secure enough to do it . i think we'll realize just how much we depend on and should value the social infrastructure that we've taken for granted. learning. this is not a single emotion. it's
3:44 pm
a complex feeling that consists of many different emotional states, from anger, to fear, to grief, to insecurity and uncertainty. in january, as the chinese government implemented the 1st major lockdown, the world was to see this year in want city. not only were medics moved in to deal with code 19, but there was an infusion of psychologists and psychiatrists from the start to do with the mental and emotional impact of the distancing isolation and fear. even mental health professionals not physically in on boarding boat. you're in shanghai and you started the technological assistance project. how does it come about $101.20 to $1.00 name. do you mean to go down to
3:45 pm
a 100. ready ready and 90 fish and back shout, you sent me the comment down a vc hydro hope you'll want man. should i do? we chat the chinese messaging up was the main point of connection between the psychologist, the aide work is making refer girls and the people needing help. what started as a group of 17 shanghai base counselors grew to 50 professions from the cross china . whoa whoa, whoa. yeah, well you know that i don't know how much she do
3:46 pm
not actually oh, how you doing that when i went down to the my out. i know y'all have shown that way or if i'm in the with that all high down all high used to sure. john, how mom with daddy we're trying to the uncle, the shockey that they
3:47 pm
were in the chiva my turn. ready your daddy, he's not one time to talk to him about what you're doing. you got a job down in your back. yeah. yeah. i'm in a job that i need,
3:48 pm
i need this. you know what you and i can get you to go put on a viewer. i'll be comparing most sony laska patch. daddy kid you have a queen. be not nonsense. you see pupils? he saw the, sorry to see we're going out and i need him to call you to be missing to school because a personal side b u j. so that's to being billed chip. you can see that the kids will be fluent,
3:49 pm
the deal to get the i'm going to live for you guys. when we face group situations winning zion looms, we seek out cooking mechanism during the lockdown, watching communities of diverse and distance. people try to cope together with fascinating in italy, balconies became spaces for music and dance, and even enabled people to share food with those who couldn't afford enough of their own. they will ha humorous. huff with school video is a line of people in different countries trying to play sports or getting a work out to get the malaysia people flickered lights on and off in a symbolic and often poignant chill. philadelphia and back with a look down swift again. when no one really knew much about the virus, and even few under the pro, distancing chance of joe or keep fighting between me. now jim, current engine. you go you jimmy,
3:50 pm
all their engine passion, male. she is the true for gender. she new patients will be going out to be that you can't even watch how we should to i got a call not jamming, which i you need to know the job should that make you should. yeah. you know, it really comes back to we are social beings. we are not meant to be a well, you know, it's analogous to the idea of hearing. the water is not safe to drink and yet we're also search. and so we're looking for opportunities in a variety of ways, and i'm actually loving some of the creative ways that people are finding to, to try and connect under these incredibly strange circumstances. but this being something else as well. laughing together,
3:51 pm
funding humor meets everything that's going on. we may not see it quite like that. but that's a coping mechanism to. well, you know, like what goes on and, you know, we need some relief. just too much to space, the pressure and anxiety all the time. and i think the laughter is what keeps this thing. you know, it's healing is for them. and so, you know, they're really moments where you can't laugh. but i've seen videos that people, you know, in the hospital find ways to make like medical workers to take time to thing, to their patients or clicking music to let people spirit god, dpi, leave the rest of the for a day right at the height of them i don't see much more than 100 countries had instituted
3:52 pm
either partial or full lockdown. that's more than 3000000000 people indoors, physically distancing it was a radical change to how so many of us are used to living. and there were significant concerns that there would be a spike in loneliness and all the sociate. it issues. ready but a study conducted between january and late april in the united states by research as a florida state university college of medicine reported some interesting early findings that spike in loneliness that mental health specialists were bracing for. it seems not to have happened. of course, there were people who felt a nuisance of isolation. there were others whose loneliness momentarily intensified . but over all the fees of a raging epidemic of loneliness didn't materialize. i don't actually think there's a moment. i don't like the use of that contact. i mean we're living through append immigrate now we know what it needs to have major health crisis. ready and i fear the language of the academic doesn't really help us get the precise tools that we need to feel better remaining part of it is, is finding the threat of connection,
3:53 pm
a shared experience. this isn't global phenomenon. we, it's affecting people of variety of backgrounds. and so they're in the collective experience that we are not only facing this together. we're grieving together, but we also in order to fight it, we need, we need to work together, right? and so there is what i hope a growing sense of quality or a hero and comfort as we are staying home. if you protect those in our community, our faith are linked to the, to the people to live around us. you know, whether it's in the next room or the next building or the next block or the next state. we're deeply injured. and, and for me, recognizing our interdependence helps you to think about how to build solidarity in
3:54 pm
the sense that we're in together and refusing it thing the way to get through the way you can close the door and turn into an individualist is a formula for more division, it's not me personally at home or everybody else is having an exciting life at tardy them. so and i hope that you are able. ready to comfort in that fact. here's the thing about loneliness. you can be surrounded by other people and still feel lonely. because just being in a crowd isn't enough to create the kind of connection humans need. and it's counterintuitive, as it may seem. it's this very feeling of loneliness that serves as a trigger for us to find ways to make things better for us. so we become aware of which emotional needs are being lift unfulfilled and we make the effort to reach out and talk to people. there's
3:55 pm
a lot of things that we get in life because we feel occasional loneliness, like it pushed us to guide in the world and build friendships and can causes to get introspective. they can help us, you know, think creatively. it's only really dangerous when evolved into something more durable and biting. and you know that when that happens, you really do stress and it's horrible for around a good point. knowing super emergency or not just put it on for me please. the safety of c cruises, this one, i think it should be so might be selling total sooner. i'm sure that my goal is to express it on the board and on the rise increase the gym of continue to see quote, all it's not anything that's
3:56 pm
a major stigma around talking about love. and so one other that i how is that from the situation given that i think so many people are really lonely though, lose some of that stigma that people may be more open about talking about that and their experience and recognize that we're not alone. mm. we are told technology can help tackle the spread of coven 19. but our tech solutions, the best solutions we are starting to something that seems like it's in public health, very quickly becomes about measuring people what date is being collected. whereas it's being stored highly re,
