A study recently published in the journal Radiology shows that there has been a higher incidence and severity of physical intimate partner violence (IPV) during the COVID-19 pandemic in the US state of Massachusetts compared to previous years.

The study assessed data from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. The study’s findings reveal that even though fewer patients reported IPV overall, the incidence of physical IPV in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic was 1.8 times higher compared to the incidence between 2017 and 2019.

The researchers compared the data from 26 physical IPV victims in 2020 to that from 42 physical IPV victims from 2017 to 2019.

“The total number of deep injuries (injuries to deep internal organs) was 28 during 2020 versus 16 from 2017 to 2019. The number of deep injuries per victim was 1.1 during 2020 compared with 0.4 from 2017 to 2019,” according to a news release on the study published by the Radiological Society of North America.
