Social distancing policies during the COVID-19 pandemic could affect not only psychological conditions but also human immune’s responses. Regulations which involve self-quarantine and social isolation would complicate situations for some individuals who previously had negative pressures. Looking at the social distancing policies in Indonesia, limited information about the issue, and also the condition of victims who are exposed to more social pressure than normal individuals before the pandemic, the author decided to conduct a review that focused on victims of domestic violence. This review presents four articles that show interconnected and similar topics yet from different sorts of perspectives. The purpose of this literature review is to (a) describe the impact of social pressure to mental health before and after COVID-19 pandemic, (b) examine the impact of social distancing policies on victim’s immune responses, (c) discuss and summarize the outcome of this review from multiple perspectives. It appears, a certain of immune responses that influenced by social and psychological stressors (i.e., low income and childhood adversity) show some correlation to the COVID-19 inflammatory responses (i.e., angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) and C reactive protein). Further research is also discussed on protecting the victim’s immune responses from COVID-19 pandemic situation and helping victims to get better mental and physical health assistance.
