The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all aspects of our working and social lives and consequently our physical and mental health. In recent times there has been:
- an increase in alcohol consumption of around 24.9%,
- about 30% of people eating less healthy and 40% not exercising as often as they did before, and
- a significant impact on sleep – about 40% of people have lost sleep due to concern about COVID-19 and 50% of people experience extreme fatigue because of isolation at home.
To assess its impact and the risk of change and disturbances it brings to the entire aviation community, Kura Human Factors has partnered with Dr Maria Papnikou from the Aviation Academy of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and others on a study looking at the effects of COVID-19 on those working in and around aviation.
