Auther : Turki Alenezi

Objective: The aim of this study was to identify the negative psychological outcomes of the Corona pandemic (COVID-19) among a Sample of Kuwaiti society members and to investigate the variations of these outcomes in view of their high and low health practices. Methods: Data was collected via an online questionnaire two months after the spread of COVID-19 in Kuwait, and the study sample comprised 82 Kuwaitis, whose ages ranged between 25 and 57 years. The data was entered and analyzed by the statistical program SPSS, and two scales were used to measure the respondents' health behavior and the negative psychological outcomes. Results: The prevalence of negative psychological outcomes among the respondents ranged between 45% and 1.6%, where physical complaints were among the highest outcomes followed by depression and insomnia. The study revealed that there were no statistically significant differences between high and low health practices in negative psychological outcomes of the Corona pandemic. Conclusion: The profound effects of the Corona pandemic (COVID-19) on the psychological and societal health of individuals are still significant and do not differentiate between high and low health practices after being subjected to the quarantine imposed by the total lockdown.
