The Covid-19 is a worldwide pandemic that was first reported in Wuhan, China and began to spreading rapidly through several countries [4]. Persons infected with Covid-19 impacts the physical and psychological health of not only the person who is infected, but also is near and dear ones, who share many of the characteristic of the infected person. This may mean they are also labelled, stereotyped, discriminated against treated separately, and experience loss of status because of perceived link with the disease. It is evident that persons infected with Covid-19 will have mental health issues which need to be addressed [2]. The fear of transmission of the illness has created lot of fear, anxiety, insecurity, and depressive disorders, among family members of person infected with Covid-19 [1]. The rapid increase in reported infection, and increased mortality rate associated with the pandemic being unscientifically projected in the media, also has added up to the underlying condition. Nuclear families, small houses, enmeshed social relationships, and social interactions are deliberately put on hold to check the transmission.
