The bidirectional relationship between stress and disease is a well-established phenomenon, where diseases can induce stress, and conversely, stress can contribute to the onset of diseases. The COVID-19 pandemic, recognized as a global health crisis, induced widespread panic among people worldwide. This empirical study seeks to examine the extent of stress experienced by graduates in technical and management fields during the Covid-19 pandemic. The findings indicate significant alterations in the work patterns of these graduates, affecting both those who contracted the virus and those who did not. Both groups reported changes in sleep, living conditions, and eating habits, leading to notable levels of stress. Interestingly, these alterations were prevalent irrespective of COVID-19 infection status. The observed changes in stress levels during the pandemic were predominantly mild to moderate. Additionally, the heightened work-related stress during COVID-19 correlated with emerging health issues, including sensations of heaviness in limbs, fever accompanied by cough, and fluctuations between hot and cold spells, contributing to sustained stress and anxiety among the participants.
