Director of the Bureau of Gender Affairs, Melissa Morgan, says there has been an increase in domestic violence since the emergence of COVID 19.
Speaking on Kairi FM this week, Morgan said that increase is largely associated with the anxiety that exists during the pandemic.
She said she was also concerned that most instances of domestic violence go unreported.
Morgan explained that COVID 19 brought a level of anxiety and depression which if not dealt with could lead to domestic violence.
