Abstract After declaring the state of alarm in Spain due to the CQVID-19 pandemic, people above 60 were declared a risk group, being the most extensive and punished population sector during the health crisis. Current scientific evidence indicates that isolation measures as a prevention method, the stigma that may arise from belonging to a risk group or the effects of the disease itself on the Person\'s social and family environment generate significant adverse effects on health, both physical and psychological, in elderly people. The evidence indicates the need for interventions from healthcare authorities and healthcare workers for the prevention of health issues such as the promotion of physical activity, coping strategies training, fighting against aging stereotypes or the adaptation of information and the media used to inform this group of the population, among others.
