Lockdown and Alcohol Withdrawal

Mar 30, 2020Public

The unprecedented COVID19 pandemic demands an extraordinary response. Hence, along with various other measures to deal with this pandemic, India has instituted a countrywide ‘lockdown’. During the lockdown, barring the essential goods and services, availability of almost everything else is curtailed. This includes availability of alcohol. Those who use alcohol in a non-dependent pattern will experience mild or no discomfort in this situation. However, for those affected by alcohol dependence (i.e. their bodies have become physically dependent upon alcohol), the situation could have grave consequences. They might have to deal with a challenging medical condition known as alcohol withdrawal syndrome.
