Introduction: Covid-19 pandemic has created a worldwide emergency that poses a devastating threat to mental health, economic, and social indicators. Social distancing and quarantine have seriously damaged social relations. The quarantine can lead to socio-economic problems, such as long-term unemployment, job losses, and declining family incomes in many countries. Declining social relations and changing economic conditions can lead to serious crises, particularly psychological issues, in metropolitan areas. Hence, it is necessary to look at these aspects that have received less attention. Materials and Methods: In this study, the socio-economic aspects of COVID-19 disease in Tehran collected from 200,000 citizens based on qualitative indicators in the form of a questionnaire, and then the data were analyzed. Results: The results of this project showed that people's responses are very different depending on the type of job (private, government, informal, and self-employment). The type of employment relationship is decisive in answering questions, such as job loss during and after the corona pandemics, living standards, and reduced costs of luxury goods. Conclusion: In order to reduce the social risks, non-governmental organizations and the government should prepare and implement programs to ensure job security, create a desire to save, produce structured job opportunities, and develop skills.
