COVID-19 has caused an excruciating impact on the mentality of people. It has severally affected the different attributes of the personality of an individual. If we further investigate the problem, we would find that the period of quarantine in the COVID hospital is the most difficult one. It affects different attributes of the personality of an individual. If we look at the other side of this problem, we find that the solution to the problem lies within the person. It depends on the mental and physical strength of the person as to how he or she copes with a difficult situation. It is a general perception that a person who has ever played sports is more disciplined, cooperative, and coordinative in comparison to other persons. The basic hypothesis of the present research is that whether sportspersons have a positive approach towards life in comparison to other persons during the crises like a pandemic of COVID-19. To accomplish the task, a question-based survey was conducted to collect the desired data. Five behavioral aspect-bases were laid for the survey. The samples were collected from COVID patients identified as a sportsperson or non-sports persons. On these grounds, it was concluded that the behavioral pattern of players is better than the non-players; during the quarantine period of the COVID-19 pandemic. This finding offers great help to a primary care physician who provides care to the patient at the point of the first contact. Being a specialist in family medicine, internal medicine, or pediatrics such a person takes continuing responsibility for providing the patient's comprehensive care.
