25 Unhinged Tweets Contradict Study Claiming Mental-Health Crisis From Pandemic Was 'Minimal' | “I Became a Frog Tailor”
We can hardly forget the scary times when nature pushed the world indoors. Jobs, education, recreation and enjoyment took a backseat in the spring of 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic just hit. A study by BBC claimed the opposite of what people experienced during the global health hazard. According to the study, the mental health crisis brought on by the pandemic was only "minimal." Wait, what?
When BBC posted the study on its Twitter handle, people quickly disregarded the claims. They also looked back to the harsh times when people's hidden creativity overflowed. There was a phase during the pandemic when amateur cooks turned master chefs with their banana bread recreations. Then, came the 'home cafe' phase with much-hyped Dalgona coffee. The pandemic surely did not pass without causing significant emotional and physical damage but people relied on hilarious and unhinged ways to keep themselves engaged as they hoped to survive the world threat.
