An online survey almost certainly diagnosed depression

    Chinese and Taiwanese scientists have managed to create an online questionnaire that almost accurately diagnoses depression in humans.

    579 visitors of one popular medical portal were recruited as volunteers. In 31% of them, a rather severe depression was detected, in 7% a lower level was noted, in 15% very weak signs of depression were revealed, and in 46% it was not at all. An appointment with a psychiatrist after an online survey showed that for 3/4 of the examined, the diagnosis was made correctly.

    Currently, according to doctors, from 20% to 40% of the world's population are more or less susceptible to depression.
