Abstract:   (85 Views)
The novel Coronavirus Disease-19 (COVID-19) posed a high global public health threat. Implementing preventive and control measures, the whole world made effort to prevent the spread of the deadly virus [1]. The spread of the disease was higher in densely populated regions, especially in middle and low-income countries, as the measures of social distancing were difficult to implement and rehabilitation facilities are inadequate and inefficient in many such countries [2]. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted our daily life activities, movements, and business and led to profound consequences for public healthcare, economy, and sociopsychological elements [3]. Compared with the general population, people with disabilities need better health care facilities within their reach for their well-being [4].
