Abstract

Along with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people had practiced social distancing by staying in their own homes. As a result, the usage of mobile phones had significantly increased in the attempt to stay socially connected despite the ongoing pandemic. This phenomenon had led to prolonged phone usage to the point where users’ health has been affected negatively. The aim of the study is to investigate the over usage of mobile phones during the COVID-19 pandemic and the negative impact caused by it. The research was conducted online through the distribution of questionnaires with mobile phone users as the targeted audience. The survey questionnaire was used as the main data collection methodology tool with a total of 100 respondents. The results of the questionnaire had proven that mobile phone usage had significantly increased during the COVID-19 pandemic with a high number of respondents claim to be suffering from the negative impact of mobile phones due to difficulties in stopping themselves from overusing their phones.
