More than a year on from the first UK lockdown, COVID-19 has had an undeniable impact on our daily lives.

Disruption to our routines, uncertainty about work and money, general health issues and dealing with unexpected caring responsibilities continue to affect how we’re feeling and coping.

We asked you how you were feeling, and analysed your responses in the ZOE COVID Study app to determine how COVID affected our mental health. In this webinar, we'll look at what effects the pandemic threat, and contracting the virus itself, had on our mental and physical health.
