Last year attempted suicides were about 1,500,000 and successful suicides were almost 50,000. How much do you think that will increase by the end of this year with prolonged months of isolation , stress, unemployment, and substance abuse as a result of this crisis?

It seems that most human beings , especially those who haven't chosen or prepared themselves for it, are social beings and not equiped to handle isolation. Astronauts and miners who have been trapped are some good examples. And that isolation was not long compared to what people are being ordered to do now.
