Resumen en inglés COVID-19 is affecting people differently worldwide with its impact ranging from pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome to death. The direct and indirect effects of COVID-19 on a person’s motor control including on the execution of balance and gait tasks varies. This paper outlines why this may occur and explores neurological complications, mental health, cardiorespiratory complications, hospitalization and reduced physical activity level from COVID-19, and how these issues might affect human motor control. This paper also suggests how these issues may be minimised through strategies such as telehealth and physical exercise programs
