Although corona virus leads severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus. Post covid syndrome include common signs and symptoms time that are Fatigue, Cough, Joint pain, Chest pain, Memory, concentration or sleep problems, Muscle pain or headache, Depression or anxiety. Postinfectious fatigue syndrome (PIFS) refers to severe, disabling, and persistent/recurrent physical and/or mental fatigue following infectious triggers, such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites.

The current study is carried out in 155 individual with a positive SARS-COV-2. Written consent was taken. Fatigue is assessed using Fatigue Sevirity Scale (9 Items Scale) (r=0.91) and there is correlation between RTPCR VALUE and fatigue was done. Results were analysis in SPSS version 20. Mean age of population was (33.45?1.07). Data was not normally distributed so non parametric test were used. Prevalence of the fatigue was 3.96% and fatigue severity score was >36 more than half of the population. There was weak negative correlation between FSS and RTPCR VALUES Spearman rho correlation value r=-2.06. The study concluded that prevalence of fatigue and its severity does not rely on RTPCR value.
