Meditation can be a complementary therapy, but it should not be the main treatment for COVID-19 patients.
Another study – published in the Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine – also said that meditation and mindfulness can be beneficial for anyone during the COVID-19 pandemic, stating that "systematic reviews of such practices have shown improvements in measures of anxiety, depression and pain scores."
However, neither yoga nor meditation can cure COVID-19 and it is important not to just use meditation or yoga to treat COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
