The rapid effects in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic on the musculoskeletal system are due to physical and mental inactivity caused by environmental factors (isolation from both nature and social distancing).
The COVID-19 pandemic is a major challenge for all organizations. Biological agents may affect occupational safety, while personal protective equipment used during the pandemic may affect the environment. Distance working or online education may impact upon the mental health of the population. That is why it is important to study the effects of the pandemic on occupational and environmental safety.
