The purpose of this study is to ascertain the immediate effect of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) on mental health. For data collection, a survey was distributed on the social media platform in July 2020. Participants completed a validated questionnaire to evaluate the effect of COVID-19 on mental health. The research included a total of 173 individuals, 81 men and 92 females from eight countries. Out of 173 respondents, 108 are graduates, and their ages were almost between 16 and 25. According to this study, most of the young groups are predisposed to mental health issues. Thus, this was surprising proof that viral illnesses, such as COVID-19 may substantially impact the mental health of children and adolescents. The effect of the COVID-19 pandemic was moderately distressing in our poll, although the pandemic is continuing. These findings would be utilised to get a better understanding of the COVID-19 outbreak's psychological impact.
