NHK reported this morning that a group led by Tokushima University Associate Professor Yamamoto Tetsuya conducted a survey of about 20,000 people in ten prefectures that were under a state of emergency in February. According to the network, the survey found that among the approximately 2,100 people aged 18 to 29, 22.8% were in a state of depression requiring medical treatment. In addition, 46% were “stressed.” The network said Professor Yamamoto believes that university students are feeling more isolated due to online classes amid the COVID-19 outbreak and increasingly concerned about their future, and pointed out the importance of providing these young people with the necessary support at an early stage.
