economic consequences of the loss of income

economic consequences of the loss of income


the economic consequences of the loss of income that causes socio-economic distress, which scaused anger and anxiety in the months following confinement;

overall socio-economic distress;
loss of business relationships;
the high vulnerability of the self-employed;
the even greater casualization of the most economically fragile people working in trades that cannot be done by telework;
difficulty returning to work;
the tension in couples related to the types of professional activities more or less at risk of each of the partners;
the stigmatization of people who represent a danger of spreading or from an overexposed region.
Recommendations recommended by experts
The 24 studies summarized in the Lancet identify a number of measures to be implemented to limit the effects of these various stressors. These include the creation of support services to help people with anxiety and depression.

It should also be borne in mind that the duration of confinement has an impact on stressors, and has a demoralizing effect. During confinement, it is important to reduce boredom and feelings of social isolation. Several solutions are possible:

Set up toll-free numbers to reduce isolation;
Help broken families to stay in touch;
Set up a toll-free number led by health professionals to answer questions from people who have symptoms that worry them and reassure the population;
Create online support and discussion groups on the experience of confinement;
Promote communication more focused on altruism than obsession;
Thank and encourage people who are in a situation of containment to reinforce the adhesion and observance of containment measures while informing them about preventive measures.
This literature review, carried out at a global level, suggests that it is essential to make containment as acceptable as possible for all, while satisfying the specific needs of the populations most in difficulty. Indeed, if the experience of confinement is negative, the consequences will affect not only the individuals who undergo it, but also the health system which organizes it and the public policies which prescribe it.

It is not only about financial means, as illustrated by the educational literature produced by the World Health Organization, the CDC of Atlanta and other sources in order to equip citizens, families and individuals. to deal with containment. Among the available examples, let's take a look at tips for managing children's stress related to Covid-19.

Identifying children's stress: tips for parents
The Atlanta CDC has produced several fact sheets and mini-guides (in English) for adults, families and children themselves.

As a parent, it’s important to identify changes in your children's attitudes and behaviors. Indeed, these can be reactions reacting to stress. Among the points to watch:

Excessive crying or irritability in young children;
The return of "bedwetting";
Excessive worry or sadness;
Irritability and impulsivity in adolescents;
Attention and concentration difficulties;
Avoidance of activities which until then had pleased them;
Unexplained headache or body pain;
Use of alcohol, tobacco or other drugs.
To help your children and adolescents, here are several tips:

Take time to discuss the Covid-19 epidemic with them;
Answer their questions in a factual and understandable manner;
Reassure them that they are safe;
Tell them it's OK if they feel overwhelmed by the situation;
Share with them your strategies for coping with your own stress, so that they learn from you;
Limit your family's exposure to media coverage;
Try to set up and maintain routines, including schedules for school activities at home and for your children's hobbies;
Be a role model for them;
Maintain contact with friends and family members.
Other practical guides also provide guidance on how to deal with the period of release from containment. Indeed, this can cause mixed emotions: relief mixed with worries, fears, anger, guilt over his work performance during the confinement period, etc.

In conclusion, it is important to implement psychosocial support strategies for containment-related measures, in order to make it as acceptable as possible.

This means adopting a public health approach that combines collective decision-making without neglecting to deployempathetic, caring interventions, focused on the needs of the population. This is in fact made up of individuals who need to feel that they count as unique and singular subjects in the concern of public health authorities.

It is a difficult exercise, but if all the actors divide up the tasks and coordinate, we can do it. At the Sorbonne Patient University, we volunteer to contribute, like many associations that already have solid experience with epidemics.
