The common problems faced by individuals after COVID-19 includes weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath with activity, difficulty in walking and perform-ing daily tasks. When one experiences such physical impairments it can lead to stress which nega-tively affects the mind .Thus fear and depression can both impact the health of the body.

Thus trying to help the public at large to tackle the after effects of COVID in the community, the department of Physiotherapy Father Muller College of Allied Health Sciences , have conceptualized and produced a video based on the guidelines given by the World Health Organisation for post COVID-19 survivors. As the recent research states that early intervention through exercise and ac-tivity aimed at treating the whole person will play an important role in the recovery process.
