LGBT+ helpline sees calls double as queer people fear being left with abusive families during coronavirus lockdown
An LGBT+ charity has said it has seen a huge increase in the number of calls to its helpline since the coronavirus pandemic started.
The UK-based LGBT Foundation said the number of calls received over the last week was more than double the number received in the same period last year.
Worryingly, the charity said countless LGBT+ people are seeking support as they are stuck self-isolating with abusive family and partners.
They also warned that self-isolation means many queer people have been forced back into the closet, while many more have faced severe financial issues due to the pandemic’s economic fallout.
Coronavirus: American children are dying because of quarantine, doctors warn
Children kept at home due to the coronavirus pandemic may be putting them at greater risks of harm from both accidents and - tragically - abusive parents, according to a doctor.
In Fort Worth, Texas, a sudden surge of child abuse cases has raised red flags for doctors at the facility.
Speaking to Newsweek, Dr Jamye Coffman, the medical director of the Child Advocacy Resources and Evaluation team at the Cook Children's Hospital, said a rise in child-abuse related injuries could be the result of children spending greater time at home with parents amid increased stress levels caused by coronavirus fears.
"I can't say for sure that this is related to [COVID-19]" she said. "I can't say for sure that this isn't just a fluke, but we know that when there's increased stress ... within families there's an increased risk of abuse to children."
