Abstract

Objective: to present psychological repercussions for adults before the expectation of being affected by the Corona virus. Method: qualitative narrative interpretive study. Results: the study pointed out 96% of the participants' concern and fear of being attacked by the Corona virus; and 4% said they didn't; such indicators point to the perception of the severity of the disease, especially of the possible effects derived from comorbidities; therefore, the distress of the participants was independent of gender, and the narrative demonstrated the magnitude of the suffering manifested in the sphere of psychological and mental health, highlighting anxiety, panic and depression, stress, fear, fear, shortness of  breath, tachycardia, tightness in the chest, tingling. , fall or rise in blood pressure, headache as psychosomatic symptoms associated with and derived from the emotions described and enhanced by the news on Brazilian news and virtual social networks. There are also physical symptoms: muscle pain, "stomach wraps"; voltage; overweight and anorexia. As for humor, impatience, irritability and a feeling of helplessness worsened. Conclusion: The meaning of the word expectation understood in the narratives refers to an antithesis experienced on a daily basis, that is, to move between the possibility of the Covid-19 being affected, the illness of loved ones; and the hope of vaccination as a source of cure and overcoming uncertainties, irrational thoughts that nourish fear and anxiety.
