The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has changed the typical lifestyle of people worldwide for nearly two years. Maybe before the onset of this pandemic, no one believed that a virus could change all aspects of life. COVID-19 has had a catastrophic effect worldwide, and it has led to more than 5 million deaths.1
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, different factors such as emotional and exaggerated images and news, rumors, and misinformation about the origins and causes of the disease, have affected the lifestyle of the people, and many people have lost their family or friends., all leading to increased anxiety.2 The results of studies in the previous pandemics have shown that one of the most critical domains of harm is the mental health of people and the significant point is that the mental health of infected individuals was less affected than non-infected individuals. During the COVID-19 pandemic, different studies have evaluated the mental health of people. Fear and anxiety are common feelings that are experienced by patients with or suspected of COVID-19. A study published in 2020 showed that fear of illness results in increased anxiety and stress levels in patients, healthy individuals or health workers.
