  1. The suffering of the survivors of Covid is not only related to the traumatic events; rather, the subsequent life events and sufferings in the post-Covid life cause higher emotional problems if an adequate, community-based, psychosocial care approach is not adapted.
  2. Individuals are not in any real sense autonomous or self-sufficient, their loneliness during the pandemic is real and healing occurs in the context of family, friends, and community.
  3. Effective rehabilitation methods for persons who survived Covid and those suffering from post Covid social and other traumatic events including loss of loved ones to being children who were separated from the parent due to quarantine and their complications needs to address the problems posed by various potential events.
  4. The post Covid rehabilitation planning continuum is broad in scope and must address collaboration across agencies and organisations, advance preparations, as well as needs assessments, event management, recovery and rebuilding efforts.
  5. Failure to provide these services definitely will show higher distress, disabilities, and lack of social well-being. Local community support in coordination with Government functionaries need to reach each and every family by providing with appropriate services. It is very important to focus on population than individuals to create a supportive and a resilient community.
