Chinese respondents reported the lowest levels for all health issues. This is likely due to the country not implementing a national lockdown, and because many measures were lifted quite a while back. For example, Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, saw its lockdown lifted nearly two months ago.
Since China is considered ahead of the curve compared to the other countries studied, this could suggest that any problems people faced due to the lockdowns have decreased since they were lifted. This is good news for countries reporting high numbers for health issues now.
Speaking of high numbers, people in the UK appear to be suffering a lot. For sleep issues, weight gain, and migraines, they top the list. For back pain, they come second.
The country has seen a national lockdown in place since March, and is the only country (with the exception of Australia) in this list with one still in place.

Regardless of the country, it’s clear that many will come out of lockdowns physically affected, whether they got Covid-19 or not.
