The coronavirus keeps spreading all around the world. Health officials recommend that people practice social distancing, which practically means staying at home as much as possible. Only essential traveling is allowed in numerous countries and strict restrictions apply in some parts of the world.
Since these recommendations will not change in the following months, people in self-isolation and quarantine started to feel the psychological effect of social distancing.
