Determinants of Physical Activity and Mental Health During Covid-19 Movement Restriction Order Among University Students
Covid-19 pandemic has affected the entire globe for the past 2 years on a major scale, causing never before seen major effects on the way we live probably for the near future. SARS-Cov-2, previously known as coronavirus, is the causative virus for this disease and it originates from Wuhan, China with its first reported case of human infection back in December 2019. From there, it quickly resulted in an outbreak which was first unsuccessfully contained by the China government and has spread across the globe causing more than 187 million positive cases and 4.05 million deaths at the time of writing this proposal. For this reason, various measures have been implemented to control the spread of the virus with the main one to be discussed for reasons of this research, the movement restriction order (MCO). MCO was implemented to limit and control the local outbreak by restraining the movements of the people only to the absolute necessary. Social and religious gatherings, outdoor recreational activities, operation of learning institution of all levels are among those prohibited, only allowing essential goods store and health care facility centres to operate for the period. Thus, this study is done to assess the impact Covid-19 movement restriction has had on university students from a physical and psychological standpoint during the MCO period. The implementation of the various restriction order has caused the students to go through numerous cycles of distress and it is of importance to determine the impact it has done to be able to provide the appropriate support if needed.
