Outbreak plays havoc with sleeping habits

By Li Honygyang | China Daily | Updated: 2020-03-26 00:00

The novel coronavirus outbreak has taken its toll on the nation's sleeping habits over the past two months, with many people staying up late due to anxiety or boredom, according to a survey.

The Chinese Sleep Research Society interviewed more than 2,000 people between the ages of 19 and 80 in 31 provincial-level regions about their sleeping patterns from Jan 1 to Feb 29.

The survey found more than half of the respondents in self-isolation at home went to bed after midnight. Ninety percent said they usually fell asleep before midnight, before Jan 1.
