It was named as Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) by the World Health Organization. Patients developed anxiety and sleep problems after treatment. Patients with confirmed COVID-19 (n = 57) admitted to our study and whose treatment was completed 3 months ago were included in the study. This is a case-control study, and 22 patients included the control group. We found statistical significance between the average score of Beck anxiety and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (p = 0.03, p = 0.01). In our study, we investigated the psychological conditions that may occur in the postacute COVID-19 period. We recommend that patients should be directed to appropriate clinics for rehabilitation. Clinicians must be aware that prompt and correct diagnosis with careful management is essential for recovery. Copyright © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
