After the unfortunate but inevitable situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the three
main components of the medical system - prevention, treatment and rehabilitation - are
equally important.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created an increased demand for acute or post-acute hospital
beds, far surpassing the existing provisions in place in many communities. Serbia and many
other countries have forcibly converted existing health facilities (and rehabilitation facilities)
into dedicated COVID-19 centers to provide "new beds" to relieve overcrowded Intensive
Care Units. The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced limitations for many patients to access
standard health services such as visits to health care professionals, medications as well as
attendance at Rehabilitation. Patients with COVID-19 can develop countless acute medical
problems and their treatment often requires invasive procedures: all of them can cause
medium- and long-term consequences that require rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation is applied during continuous treatment, starting from acute, mainly in post-
acute and prolonged rehabilitation in the chronic phase of the disease. The current situation
in which we find ourselves requires the provision of individual rehabilitation programs,
especially in the subacute phase of the disease in accordance with the needs of the patient.
Prescribing and providing rehabilitation programs should be carried out in specialized
rehabilitation centers, which are located in well-known Spa centers in Serbia, which have
highly educated staff and adequate equipment.
