The outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in China has become a cause for alarm and apprehension amongst people of all ages and abilities. The current pandemic's impacts on the general population's psychological well-being (PWB) and level of physical activity (PA) are explored in this study  because its deleterious effects can still be observed. The magnitude at which the transmission of the virus has disrupted the normalcy of daily life is extensive. As a result, this review aims to consolidate evidence on the general public's rapid psychological response during the early and present phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as its impact on PA. A systematic online literature search was undertaken that offered information about the relation between COVID-19 and PA levels, as well as the link between PWB and COVID-19 in the general population. Pandemic has negatively impacted the routine activities that promote healthy and holistic living. This has brought to light societal structural patterns that could potentially result in a considerable drop in PA, necessitating the need for innovative solutions to reverse these trends.
