Therefore, the main objective of this study was to highlight on the psychological impacts that affect the quality of life and psychological well-being of patients after COVID-19 and to identify those impacts and their prevalence within Jordanian society. The design and use of the descriptive analysis method and the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K10) were conducted using an online questionnaire to collect data on the participants. This study included 220 participants. Findings of this work indicated that 30% of participants suffer from psychological impacts, 57% had minor psychological impacts, and 66% of the participants had anxiety related to the socio-economic aspect, while 30% of the participants have a feeling of fear of infection and stigma associated with quarantine.
