Good days, bad days

Sayanora D. from Mumbai says she can sometimes see bacteria and viruses on surfaces. The 35-year-old has had to deal with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) since childhood but the symptoms were always under control. The Covid-19 pandemic, though, aggravated her OCD. She would wash her hands up to fifty times a day and became non-functional. “My family members had a tough time dealing with my obsession with sanitation,” said Sayanora. “I restricted myself to my room and reduced interactions with people, including my own family. I feared that if I stepped out, I would get Covid.”
