Author(s): Yousif Ali Yaseen, Aleen Sardar Al-Noori, Soleen Sardar Zuhdi, Azri Salih Haji Sgery

Background and objective: During the current global crisis, people seek the latest updates about COVID-19, which might come with a negative effect on their mental health. This study aims to assess the effect of COVID-19 news follow-up on developing internet addiction, stress, depression, and insomnia among medical students at the early phase of COVID-19 pandemic.

Method: An online cross-sectional study was conducted among medical students between 5th until 12th of April, 2020. 345 students participated from all 6 stages. IAT, DASS and ISI questionnaires assessed internet addiction, stress, depression, and insomnia. A singlestructured question evaluated the percentage of online time used to follow COVID-19 news.

Results: 32.5% of the participants were significantly following up COVID-19 news. The relation of following up COVID-19 news to internet addiction (p=0.004), stress (p=0.019), depression (p=0.018), and insomnia (p=0.001) were statistically significant. Nevertheless, the relation of age and gender to following up COVID-19 news was statistically non-significant with p values of 0.124 and 0.145, respectively. Among significant COVID-19 news followers, the prevalence of internet addiction was 86.9%, stress was 54.5%, depression was 71.4% and insomnia was 91.9% all were higher compared to the overall sample.

Conclusion: Despite the current pandemic state of coronavirus, only 32.5% of the participants were significant COVID-19 news followers. Nevertheless, the present study unfolds that adverse outcomes can develop among this group, as a significant association was found between following up on COVID-19 news and internet addiction, stress, depression, and insomnia.
