As the world comes to terms with the Covid-19 pandemic, people are increasingly reporting that they suffer from panic attacks that leave them both physically and mentally exhausted.

Priory Wellbeing Centres Dubai and Abu Dhabi say they have seen a 20 per cent increase in enquiries about treatments for anxiety since the start of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, the EU’s medicines watchdog on Monday approved a vaccine specifically targeting the new and contagious types of the Omicron variant amid fears of a new wave of Covid-19 winter infections.

The so-called “bivalent” jab, made by Pfizer/BioNTech, is directed at the highly infectious BA.4 and BA.5 types of the variant and is the first of its kind to be approved within the 27-nation bloc.

“This recommendation will further extend the arsenal of available vaccines to protect people against Covid-19 as the pandemic continues and new waves of infections are anticipated in the cold season,” the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said.
