Abstract

As an effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is expected that there will be a worsening of psychological health in the general population. An increase in the levels of anxiety and depression may be observed, depending on the coping resources that each person has or the lack of them. A study was carried out with convalescent patients of Covid-19 in the municipality of Viñales with the objective of determining the levels of anxiety, depression, and the coping strategies used. The study had a non-experimental, cross-sectional design with exploratory-descriptive scope. The sample selection was non-probabilistic and consisted of 77 patients. The interview, the IDARE, the IDERE, and the Lazarus and Folkman's Coping Modes Scale were used as techniques. As results, a predominance of the male sex was identified, the most affected age group with 76% is 25 to 55 years of age and the most affected popular council is Viñales. There was evidence of medium anxiety levels as a state and high as a trait in 75% of the sample, 86% presented medium levels of depression as a state and high as a trait. The coping strategies used were focused on the problem, which was representative of 90% of those studied.
