Summary
Brief summary
Since the first case reported in Wuhan city, China in December, 2019, COVID-19 has now become a pandemic issue and affected more than 1.5 million of people globally. On 23rd January, 2020, Chinese government implemented strict social isolation policy by locking down Wuhan city. Since then, COVID-19 outbreak has gradually been under control in China. However, a significant increase in incidence of COVID-19 occurred outside of China has made it a pandemic issue. More and more countries and cities adopted social isolation policy to ask their residents to stay at home for self-isolation and to maintain social distance in order to minimise disease transmission. On the other hand, this social isolation can also have psychological impacts such as anxiety and depression on the involved residents.

The IMSOMNIA study will provide initial unique insights into the impact of social isolation on mental health and to identify the group of people requiring intervention.
