“Young people in the UK aged between 18 and 34 are experiencing an ‘epidemic of loneliness.’ This is the conclusion of the Age of Alienation, a new report published by the think-tank Onward. … It shows how lockdown has exacerbated the growing sense of isolation already experienced by many young people. That is why the past 15 months of social restrictions have not been quite as stifling an ordeal for the young as one might have expected — because many were already living increasingly socially distanced lives anyway.” (07/12/21)
