Due to current pandemic of Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19), elderly people tend to show deterioration of physical and cognitive function and exacerbation of nutritional status, leading to the progression of sarcopenia and frailty. Recent topic includes the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology-Home Exercise Program for Older People (NCGG-HEPOP) 2020. It has six packs for health maintenance, such as balance improvement, strengthening, inactivity prevention, feeding/swallowing improvement, nutrition improvement and cognition. The pandemic may bring decreased social interaction, decreased physical activity, and increased physical stress of viral infection. NCGG-HEPOP will hopefully prevent such exacerbation in the light of geriatrics and rehabilitation medicine.
