On 20 March 2023 Axios reported: COVID-19 caused widespread disruptions to people's lives and global economies -- but a major new study finds people are slightly happier than before the pandemic began. ...The report found global misery declined slightly during the pandemic. The 'undoubted pains' the world faced over the pandemic 'were offset by increases in the extent to which respondents had been able to discover and share the capacity to care for each other in difficult times,' according to the report. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of health and culture, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Benevolence to others has risen roughly 25 percent since the pandemic began, John Helliwell, a professor of economics at the University of British Columbia and a co-editor of the report, told CNN.
