HealthDay (5/12, Preidt) reports, “Americans’ rates of depression and anxiety spiked during the first year of the pandemic, but the increases were much more pronounced among Black, Hispanic and Asian people than among white people,” investigators concluded. The study revealed that when “comparing 2019 to April-May 2020, probabilities of depression and anxiety were 218% larger for white people, 280% larger for Black people, 344% larger for Hispanic people and 560% larger for Asian American people.” The findings were published online March 22 in the Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities.
