Lockdowns, social distancing and isolation brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic can take a toll on mental health, Dr. Vivek Murthy told Ian Bremmer on GZERO World. While maintaining distance and avoiding group gatherings is necessary at this time, we must also be mindful of having meaningful interactions with friends and family. Dr. Murthy discusses how this unprecedented moment could lead to either a "social recession" or "social revival" depending on what path we take as a nation.
