Description

COVID-19 (The coronavirus disease 2019), COVID-19 infection with a wide variety of symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, high fever, loss of taste and smell, diarrhea and can even progress to a very serious condition such as acute respiratory distress syndrome. It is a common disease that has manifested itself worldwide in the last 1 year as a disease and was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020.

80% of the cases have mild or asymptomatic disease, and 20% need treatment in hospital conditions. Although the disease affects different age groups, it generally affects people aged 60 and over more. It can take weeks to get over the disease; however, some symptoms persist even after the infection has cleared. The continuation of physical, cognitive and psychological problems in COVID-19 patients recovering from the acute phase of the disease is called 'Post-COVID-19 Syndrome'. Symptoms of the disease include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath, as well as common musculoskeletal problems such as muscle pain, joint pain and fatigue, anxiety, depression, poor sleep quality and decreased quality of life, and difficulties in daily living activities. Moreover, the course and prevalence of the disease and its severity in our country as well as in the world have developed a new psychological pressure about the disease and revealed the situation of coronavirus phobia, and even this affects the mood and sleep quality of individuals. It has been shown that depression and anxiety are observed, especially in patients with severe respiratory-related symptoms, both during the active period of the disease and during the period when the symptoms continue despite the recovery of the disease, and the quality of life is adversely affected.
