LINO ASIN, Abel Luis. Approach to the programs of Regular Physical Activity applied to the Public Health during COVID-19 time. Rev Podium [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.2, pp.662-676.  Epub 25-Ago-2021. ISSN 1996-2452.

Covid-19 has spread with thousands of confirmed cases and deaths, challenging public health systems around the world; it is a disease for which there is no scientifically corroborated treatment so far, becoming a pandemic. Preventive mechanisms have been implemented by the different countries of the region to avoid contagion and spread. In this work, the aim was to analyze the Regular Physical Activity (RPA) programs and their results in the region in order to improve and overcome the harmless effects of the programs that have been developed to date. The objective of this study was to stimulate reflections on the benefits of the social programs of Regular Physical Activity and public health, as enhancers of healthy lifestyles and as favorable alternatives to the effects of COVID-19 on people. The literature review method and the single case study were used. The preservation of health through Regular Physical Activity as a protective factor against COVID-19 is a responsibility of the individual and the family, but the promotion of public health and the encouragement, favoring and promotion of these Regular Physical Activity programs within the framework of public health will make it possible to prevent disease and prolong life. To this end, it is essential to address the culture, beliefs and expectations regarding Regular Physical Activity. In essence, the challenge is to overcome illiteracy in Public Health and build that bridge of approach so necessary in these times of COVID-19.
