A global health emergency based on the COVID-19 outbreak was declared on the 30th of January 2020. Countries more susceptible to the COVID-19 situation included those with compromised, weak or vulnerable healthcare systems. During the COVID-19 global pandemic it became apparent that the lives of the citizens of the world would be affected from a public health, lifestyle and economy perspective. As a consequence, the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic continued to grow which gave rise to observing quarantine measures, social distancing measures, hospitalisation / bed rest measures and risks of physical inactivity brought about by immobilisation. This study aims to evaluate the effect of COVID-19 on leisure physical activity among 10,121 participants using a validated COVISTRESS questionnaire.
