Abstract: Objectives. The present research is a longitudinal study with the aim of highlighting the effect of the pandemic on the frequency of aggressions from a forensic perspective.
The hypothesis started from the premise that the aggressions showed an increasing trend during the pandemic, indicating a significant difference between the number of aggressions in the previous period and the number of aggressions in the pandemic and post-pandemic period.
Population. The sample of the study consisted of 420 people who were identified by forensic findings at the Institute of Forensic Medicine of Cluj Napoca, as victims of aggression between 2019 -2022. The results showed significant differences in the number of aggressions during the pandemic period resulting in an upward trend.
Conclusions. The pandemic period had a significant impact on aggressive behaviors, with a tendency of an increased number of aggressions.
Keywords: Covid-19, aggression, victims.
