Arben Hysenaj*

Introduction: SARS-COVID-19 now is known as a pandemic and planetary widespread virus, and there is little known about the impact of this pandemic on people's health. This study aims to investigate the cognitive distortion (ourselves, self-blame, and about the world) among infected people from SARS-COVID-19.

Methodology: Individual semi-structured interviews were conducted among 18 interviewees. Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and analyzed via Grounded Theory approach.

Results: Findings indicate that infected people from SARS-COVID-19 show cognitive distortions about the world, about themselves, and self-blame.

Conclusions: There should be a focus on decreasing the cognitive distortion among infected people, to avoid psychological disorders and behavior deviation that can come up from cognitive distortions. Policymakers, health experts should pay attention to cognitive changes among infected people. They should offer projects and strategies for supporting infected people from SARS-COVID-19.
