Death and Dying: A Reflection on How Mourning Changed During the Pandemic

Gabriel M. Alexandre Silva et al.

As the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome – Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) struck the world with a swift and widespread movement, many lifestyle changes were enforced onto the population as countermeasures in order to save as many lives as possible and to lower the resource consumption as much as possible … Indeed, all these changes deeply affected psychology of people. The psychological situation even worsen during the mourning of a beloved person, since funerals are, in most countries, completely prohibited by law as a sanitary measure

… The pandemic scenario poses a challenge concerning the ‘dignity’ of dying, which has caused many mental problems in people involved. Thus, this aspect of pandemic requests much more attention of the health professionals. However, the narrow relationship of health professional with bereaved family members has generated anxiety, making the process of coping with post-death mourning even more difficult. Nonetheless, this challenge can be faced through holistic measures and appropriate support from both caregivers and civilians involved.
