F Currently, one of the most critical issues in health care around the world is the COVID19 pandemic.  Singh et al. (2020) stated, “COVID19 pandemic and Lockdown has brought about a sense of fear and anxiety around the globe”. A Washington post by Searing (2020) analyzes the increasing number of U.S adults that are struggling with mental health issues. Those experiencing symptoms of COVID19 such as anxiety and depression reach 40 percent, which is an 11 percent increase from last year at the same time. In addition, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, some individuals have started or increased alcohol consumption or drugs to help them cope with pandemic-related sorrows.
Furthermore, researchers have discovered an increase in the number of suicides among young adults aged 18 to 24. Isolation, loneliness, job loss, economic difficulties, and fear of catching the virus are all variables that contribute to these people’s mental health issues.
According to other studies, women are more likely than males to experience negative mental health impacts as a result of coronavirus stress. Suicidal ideation, on the other hand, was more common among men. To cope with COVID19 related stress these people are more prone to increase their substance usage or have suicide thoughts.
 Singh (2020) highlights the importance of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP). EBP can improve patient overall safety, increase efficiently and lower medical costs. The article also explains that many vulnerability factors, such as developmental age, educational position, pre-existing mental health conditions, being economically disadvantaged, or being isolated due to infection or fear of disease, determine the quality and severity of those impacts by the pandemic (Singh, 2020).   
Another article by Curley (2019) emphasizes the importance of evidence-based practice regarding quality care and better patient outcomes globally in COVID19 patients. When Covid started, WHO declared a public emergency and global concern. The full effects of the illness affect health care and weaning the health care systems. SDGs place a strong emphasis on health. Ensuring healthy lives and promote well-being for all ages’ is a comprehensive target of SDG. Their Statement underlines that “we must achieve universal health coverage (UHC) and access to quality health care to accomplish the overall health target.” And no one left behind.’
