Loss experienced during the pandemic has not been limited to loss of life, and the inability to grieve has only compounded the situation. There are ways, however, to help loved ones cope and heal. Under normal circumstances, you would go through a period of grief and return to normal, everyday activities. Grief is typically finite.
With the coronavirus, grief is ongoing. Nobody knows for sure when it will end and you might not feel like you're making any progress. This kind of loss and ongoing grief can cause anxiety, sadness, anger, and even depression.
