    The emerging body of research on the predictors of mental health in the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed contradictory findings, which prevent effective psychiatry screening for mental health assistance. This study aims to identify the predictors of nonsomatic pain HP pain MESHD, depression MESHD, anxiety HP anxiety MESHD, and distress, especially focusing on age TRANS as a nonlinear predictor. We conducted a survey of 474 adults TRANS in Iran during April 1-10, 2020, when Iran had just passed its first peak of the COVID-19 pandemic with new confirmed cases TRANS. We found that Age TRANS had a curvilinear relationship with nonsomatic pain MESHD pain HP, depression MESHD, and anxiety HP anxiety MESHD. Age TRANS was associated with pain HP pain MESHD, depression MESHD, and anxiety HP anxiety MESHD disorders negatively among adults TRANS younger than 45 years, but positively among seniors older than 70 years. Adults TRANS who were female TRANS, unsure about their chronic diseases, and exercised less per day were more likely to have mental health issues. This study advances the use of age TRANS as an effective predictor by uncovering a curvilinear relationship between individuals' age TRANS and mental health issues by using a sample of adults TRANS across a wide spectrum of ages TRANS. We hope future research on mental health during COVID-19 pays more attention to nonlinear predictors.

    In the recent outbreak of COVID-19, many countries have taken various kinds of quarantine measures to slow down the explosive spreading of COVID-19. Although these measures were proven to be successful in stopping the outbreak in China, the potential adverse effects of countrywide quarantine have not been thoroughly investigated. In this study, we performed an online survey to evaluate the psychological effects of quarantine in China using Zung Self-rating Anxiety HP Anxiety MESHD Scale in February 2020 when the outbreak was nearly peaked in China. Along with the anxiety HP anxiety MESHD scores, limited personal information such as age TRANS, gender TRANS, region, education, occupation and specifically, the type and duration of quarantine were collected for analysis. For a total number of 992 valid questionnaires, clinical significance of anxiety HP anxiety MESHD symptoms was observed in 9.58% respondents according to clinical diagnostic standards in China. Statistical results showed population with different age TRANS, education level, health status and personnel category responded differently. Other characteristics such as gender TRANS, marital status, region, and acquaintance with suspected or confirmed cases TRANS of COVID-19 did not affect anxiety HP anxiety MESHD levels significantly. Respondents experienced different forms of quarantine showed different anxiety HP anxiety MESHD levels. Unexpectedly, longer durations of quarantine did not lead to significant increase of anxiety HP anxiety MESHD level. Our results suggest a rather mild negative psychological influence caused by the countrywide quarantine during COVID-19 outbreak in China and provided reference for other countries and regions to battle COVID-19.

    BACKGROUND The related research of coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic on mental health of community residents is still lacking. Here we reported the mental health status of Chinese residents as well as community’s prevention and control during the epidemic period of COVID-19, and further explored the influencing factors of mental status. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, a convenience sampling and snowball sampling methods were adopted from February16 to February 23, 2020 and Chinese community residents were included according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Three questionnaires including General Anxiety HP Anxiety MESHD Disorder 7(GAD-7), Patient Health Questionnaire 9 (PHQ-9), and a self-designed “Community prevention and control questionnaire” were used. A multivariate linear regression analysis was conducted to analyze the impact factors of anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and depression. RESULTS A total of 3001 community residents were included in this study. 85.6% and 83.7% of participants had minimal anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and depression MESHD respectively. 16.6% of participants demonstrated that the communities they lived in had confirmed cases TRANS. 95.3% of participants reported that the residents were screened for mobility and contact history. 97.8% of participants reported entrance and exit of community were managed in their communities. 97.5% and 99% of participants were required to take body temperature and wear masks in their communities. 92% communities had their public areas and facilities disinfected every day and 95.4% communities have conducted health education about COVID-19. Factors including gender TRANS, education level, chronic illness, the frequency of going out, achieving information about COVID-19 by community and newspaper, and confirmed cases TRANS in the community, show association with community residents’  anxiety MESHD and depression MESHD.                                        CONCLUSIONS the vast majority of Chinese residents have little anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and depression, and most communities had adopted standardized control measures in accordance with government’s regulations and policy which plays an important role in the control of COVID-19 and improving residents’  anxiety MESHD and depression MESHD.
