This review offers to provide context for the indirect health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic thus far, including its impact on health service delivery and utilization. Results found an overall decrease in utilization of health services for non-COVID-19 related care, which could lead to an increase in chronic diseases in the future as patients are not receiving timely checkups.
