Introduction: Covid-19 is a new respiratory disease that is the cause of an acute infection characterized by a progressive epidemiological picture. On the other hand, it will depend on the stage of the disease in which the patient is and the presence of physiological sequelae or acquired comorbidities, being these factors responsible for altering the quality of life and its relationship in the health field, affecting not only the physiological level but also other alterations such as the physical and mental state and the subjective impression of the state of the disease in the patient. Objective: To determine the quality of life of post Covid-19 patients. Materials and methods: A descriptive, cross-sectional study was carried out with a sample of 24 patients who signed the informed consent prior to the application of the evaluation. A section with sociodemographic variables was included and the Saint George questionnaire was applied for quality of life. Finally, the data analysis was compiled in Excel and SPSS software. Results: It was found that 83.3% of the post-covid-19 patients had a “good” quality of life health; the most impaired dimension was “Impact,” with a mean of 24.3 ± 9.90, standing out from the other categories. Similarly, it was shown that 21% of the population was diagnosed with diseases after acquiring the virus, but they fall within a range of “good” quality of life without limitations in the dimensions of the questionnaire. Conclusion: Quality of life can become an important factor in the study of health. However, the percentage of the study population does not fall within a poor quality of life. However, it is essential to mention the correlation between Covid-19 and the sociodemographic variables associated with a negative effect on the quality of life according to the Saint George questionnaire evaluation and the degree of the disease in the patient.
