This study aims to know the correlation between the degree of social support and the level of ‎symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder among people recovering from the emerging coronavirus ‎epidemic. ‎ The study was conducted on a sample of 102 individuals, who recovered from this virus, including 51 ‎males and 51 females, who were distributed to..., Three categories included a first category (from 20 to ‎‎30 years), a second category (from 30 to 40 years), and a third category (from 40 years and above).‎ ‎The two social support scales of Zimet (1988), and the anxiety scale were applied to the sample ‎members, Davidson's Aftershock (1995), The importance of this study lies in identifying the concept of ‎social support as it provides the individual with a basic mechanism and an effective role in preventing ‎various psychological disorders resulting from the pressures and crises that obstruct the individual’s life ‎in general, on the one hand, and on the other hand, to help the statistical centers in quantifying the ‎psychological effects left by this epidemic, So that these centers can develop rehabilitation and ‎awareness programs aimed at psychological support and guidance, and thus develop effective plans ‎aimed at prevention and appropriate treatment, The results of this study concluded that there is a high ‎level of social support among the sample members, as well as the existence of a statistically significant ‎correlation between the degree of social support and the level of symptoms of post-traumatic stress ‎disorder in the sample studied. ‎ ‎Its results also concluded that there are statistically significant differences in the degree of social ‎support among the individuals, The sample is attributed to the variable: age (from 20 to 50 years) and ‎the absence of these differences with regard to the gender variable (male-female)‎‎.
