Older adults coped with COVID-19 pandemic best, UBC study reveals

Older adults who are aged 60 and above, have better emotional wellbeing, and felt less stressed and threatened by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to a new UBC (The University of British Columbia) research.Based on daily data collected between mid-March and mid-April of this year, the researchers found that older people have fared better emotionally compared to younger adults (18-39) and middle-aged adults (40-59).

The new research results were published in the 'Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences'."Our findings provide new evidence that older adults are emotionally resilient despite public discourse often portraying their vulnerability.
