They were also a means of entertainment and leisure. The aim of this study is to investigate the extent of smartphone addiction among students of Shahid Sadoughi School of Health in Yazd during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Methods: This was a cross-sectional descriptive study conducted during COVID-19 pandemic. The statistical population included 303 students from the school of Health.
