COVID-19 and physical activity: a rapid classification of published articles (methods)

Playing with Pubmed and the following search equations to update my course, I found more than 150 published articles (2020/09/02): (“physical activity”[Title/Abstract]) AND (COVID[Title/Abstract]) and (“physical exercise”[Title/Abstract]) AND (COVID[Title/Abstract]).

I propose a rapid classification of references based on the methodological characteristics: interventional investigations, device measured physical activity during the COVID lockdown, and Mental health – Quality of life measures, physical activity and COVID

Interventional investigations – Physical exercise and COVID
