First results on loneliness during the Corona pandemic, taken from the data of our online diary study "Bochum Berlin Covid-19 Study", show that there was no general trend towards an "epedemic of loneliness" in non-contact periods, but for some groups of people (e.g., parents) an increase in daily loneliness over time was observed.

The results are summarized in a generally understandable way in this press release: https://news.rub.de/wissenschaft/2020-08-11-psychologie-wie-einsam-sich-deutschland-waehrend-des-corona-lockdowns-fuehlte
