COVID-19 influences all domains of human activity since 2020, including physical activity and health. In addition to the direct impact of COVID-19 on physical and mental health outcomes, changes in physical activity may also further influence this negative impact. So far, preliminary studies have shown both quantitative and qualitative changes in physical activity. It has been observed that physical activity decreases during this period, whereas there is a swift from moderate-to-high intensity physical activity to lower intensity physical activity such as walking.
“COVID-19 on Exercise and Health” focuses on the current state of knowledge on the links among exercise, health, and COVID-19. Original research papers, systematic and narrative reviews, and case reports are welcome to this issue. Other manuscript types accepted include methodological papers, position papers, brief reports, and commentaries. Manuscripts from different disciplines including medicine, nutrition, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, psychology, and sports science are expected to provide insights on the way exercise and health aspects change during COVID-19.
