Retrospective 100 COVID-19 patients in Bosnia and Herzegovina, showing lower symptom severity and faster recovery with a history of regular physical activity.
risk of oxygen therapy, 89.5% lower, RR 0.11, p = 0.045, high activity levels 0 of 53 (0.0%), low activity levels 4 of 47 (8.5%), NNT 12, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm).
risk of hospitalization, 91.4% lower, RR 0.09, p = 0.02, high activity levels 0 of 53 (0.0%), low activity levels 5 of 47 (10.6%), NNT 9.4, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm).
risk of progression, 83.9% lower, RR 0.16, p < 0.001, high activity levels 4 of 53 (7.5%), low activity levels 22 of 47 (46.8%), NNT 2.5, pneumonia.
no recovery, 47.3% lower, RR 0.53, p < 0.001, high activity levels 22 of 53 (41.5%), low activity levels 37 of 47 (78.7%), NNT 2.7, day 14.

Abstract: Original scientific paper UDC: 616.98:578.834]:612.766.1 Originalni naučni rad Influence of the Level Utjecaj nivoa tjelesne of Physical Activity on aktivnosti na simptome i Symptoms and Duration of trajanje oporavka od bolesti Recovery From Covid-19 Covid 19 Lejla Šebić, Alma Suhonić, Erol Kovačević, Nedim Čović, Izet Bajramović Faculty of Sport and Physical Education, University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina Fakultet sporta i tjelesnog odgoja, Univerzitet u Sarajevu, Bosna i Hercegovina Correspondence: Lejla Šebić Faculty of Sport and Physical Education; University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina Korespondencija: Lejla Šebić Fakultet sporta i tjelesnog odgoja, Univerzitet u Sarajevu, Bosna i Hercegovina Abstract: Insufficient physical activity and seden- tary lifestyle have exposed most of the population with chronicle diseases, to higher risk of infection of COVID-19, with extremely severe consequences and exhausting and long recovery after the illness. Regular physical activity, as one way of prevention and faster recovery from COVID-19, is an important priority for improvement health and quality of life in people. The aim of this paper is to determine the connection between regular physical activity of the population with the presence of symptoms and duration of recovery from COVID-19. Total number of subjects was 100 people of both genders (male 32 and female 68) of younger age (age: 30-44) without existing chronicle diseases and healed from COVID. Data of regularity of exercising, symptoms, and recovery period were obtained by survey of this study: Active group of subjects (A=53) in continuity at least 3 months, two times a week, 60 minutes and Inactive group (N=47), who never exercised, nor they are physically active. Chi-square test was used (χ2 test differences between groups), to determine differences of extensive frequencies. Results of the research showed that there are statistically significant differences between two groups (p<0.001) on the behalf of group with active subjects, in terms of severity of symptoms of COVID-19 and their recovery lasted shorter than in inactive group of subjects. Study shows that regular physical exercise has significant impact on human body and is important factor of enhancing immune system, which enables faster recovery and easier dealing with symptoms of COVID-19. Keywords: health, physical exercising, Coronavirus, COVID-19. recovery, symptoms. 78 Apstrakt: Nedovoljna tjelesna aktivnost i sedentarni način života su veliki dio populacije sa hroničnim bolestima izložili puno većem riziku obolijevanja od COVID-19 sa izuzetno teškim posljedicama po zdravlje, kao i dugotrajnijim iscrpljujućim oporavkom nakon bolesti. Redovna tjelesna aktivnost kao jedan od načina prevencije i bržeg oporavka od bolesti COVID-19 predstavlja važan prioritet unapređenja zdravlja i kvalitete života ljudi. Cilj rada je bio utvrditi povezanost redovne tjelesne aktivnosti stanovništva sa prisustvom simptoma i vremenom oporavka od COVID-19. Ukupan broj ispitanika za ovo istraživanje je činilo 100 osoba, oba spola (muškarci=32, žene=68) mlađe životne dobi (age: 30-44 godine), bez postojećih hroničnih bolesti, a prebolovale su COVID-19. Podaci o redovnosti vježbanja, simptomima i vremenu koje je bilo potrebno za oporavak, dobivene su na osnovu anketnog upitnika osmišljenog za potrebe ovog istraživanja. Ispitanici su na..
