Insomnia means the inability to sleep adequately. A central function of sleep is maintaining proper channels of cellular communication in the brain. Sleep is sometimes likened to be a sort of anti-inflammatory cleansing process.
A lack of sleep also has a negative impact on our emotional regulation and mood. Sleeping well during an ongoing pandemic can feel impossible some nights. If we’re already feeling stressed about the virus we will face to insomnia, then lack of sleep will grow up.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in December 2019, there have been extraordinary attempts by governments across the world to curtail its spread.
Governments’ implemented strict measures to curb the spread of the disease, travel restrictions, lockdowns, economic showdowns restriction of activity in public spheres, stay at home orders, closure of school and workplaces, quarantine, isolation, as well as other social distancing protocols, etc.

Mental stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension.
As an example you worry about something, not having much or any control over the outcome of a situation, having responsibilities that you’re finding overwhelming or change in your life pattern. In this pandemic situation, you feel mental stress that causes you to reduce your immunity level.

Immunity means the condition of being immune, the protection against infectious disease conferred either by the immune response generated by immunization or previous infection or by other immunologic factors.
The importance of the immune system is to protect individuals against pathogenic organisms.
As well as nutrition and good sleep are multiple factors that determine the immune response and good sleep and good nutrition are important in supporting the immune response.
Good sleep supports the immune system, which reduces the risk of infection and can improve outcomes for people fighting with the virus.
Otherwise, sleep deprivation weakens the body’s defense system and makes people more vulnerable to contracting a virus.
As per Corona Resources Centre information they mentioned following ‘’People are spending every waking moment getting one last look at their screens (news updates, Covid- 19, education, social connections). The blue light from these screens tells the brain to stop producing the sleep hormone melatonin, which can lead to trouble falling asleep.’’
