In late 2019, a novel coronavirus emerged and spread quickly from its origin in China across the globe. The CDC-recommended terminology for the virus is SARS-CoV-2 and the illness caused by this virus is called “Coronavirus Disease 2019” or COVID- 19. COVID- 19 was declared a pandemic by the WHO on March 11, 2020. The virus spread to Afghanistan and infected thousands of individuals. The study's aim is to describe the incidence of COVID-19 in the Nangarhar Corona Center, in Afghanistan, according to season between 2020 and 2022. A descriptive retrospective investigation using interview approach and an accidental sampling technique was used to collect data for this study from the inpatient medical records of patients who were identified as having SARS-CoV-2 infection following admission to the Corona Center in Nangarhar province, Afghanistan, between 2020 and 2022. The variables were age, gender of the patient, and season of the year. The data was processed using Microsoft excel and SPSS version 16. In this study, patients who met the inclusion criteria provided 32327 samples. According to age, 12112 female and 20209 male patients were reported.. There were 14337 negative cases and 17990 positive cases out of them. 5271 (29.2%) of the positive instances were found in winter, whereas 4527 (25.1%) were found in fall, 4334 (24.3%) in summer and 3857 (21.4%) in spring. The primary target of the Corona virus is the human respiratory system. The findings of this study indicated that the majority of COVID-19 patients were of 58- 67 years, and the most positive cases 5271 (29.2%) were found in winter, whereas 4527 (25.1%) were found in summer, 4334 (24%) in fall and 3857 (21.4%) in spring. Additionally, our study found that, overall, there was a negative influence of COVID-19 on Afghan population social life. Immediate action is required on the part of the general public in the shape of focused mass psychological support initiatives in order to improve the mental health of those impacted by the COVID-19 problems.
