COVID-related fatigue and resilience

Due to the spread of COVID-19, there are increasing stressors such as fear of infection, reluctance to leave the house, and a shift to telework. These stressors are collectively referred to as “COVID-related fatigue.” To reduce such COVID-related fatigue, we focus our attention on the concept of resilience.

Introduction to the Research

As COVID-19 spreads around the world, we launched a project called RE-COVER (Resilience to COVid-19 in Each Region) to investigate COVID-related fatigue and resilience in different regions around the world. Resilience is a concept that represents the strength to recover from crises or to cope with and grow in the face of adversity. The goal of this project is to uncover factors explaining how people around the world cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and grow in spite of it.

This page presents findings of the RE-COVER project, including results from four countries as well as other information related to COVID-19.

Research member

RE-COVER is a joint research project among researchers around the world. We are currently conducting surveys in Japan, China, the United States, and Malaysia. If you would like to work with us, please contact us. We are looking forward to working with you to improve the mental health of people around the world.

Our Projects



Amabie is a legendary Japanese yokai (spirit). It is said that painting pictures of Amabie can prevent epidemics or plague. That is why we have uploaded a picture of Amabie on this website. You can download and use it for free. This illustration was drawn by Ms. Kaho Iguchi.
