Abstract

Objective: In December 2019, a new coronavirus was identified that caused an epidemic across China and a worldwide pandemic (COVID-19). We aimed to examine the admissions of the children to the emergency service with psychiatric symptoms by comparing retrospectively in terms of sociodemographic variables, diagnoses, psychiatric symptoms, and psychiatric treatments during and before the Covid-19 Pandemic.
