Resumo

O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar a prevalência de inatividade física durante a pandemia de COVID-19 e a associação com variáveis do contexto pandêmico em universitários brasileiros. Conduziu se uma pesquisa transversal, multicêntrica, em cinco universidades públicas das diferentes regiões geográficas do Brasil. Participaram do estudo 5.720 estudantes, de 18 anos ou mais, entre setembro de 2020 e maio de 2021. A coleta de dados foi realizada por meio de um questionário autoaplicável online na plataforma REDCap. A variável dependente foi inatividade física. As variáveis independentes foram os aspectos relacionados à pandemia. A prevalência de inatividade física foi de 48,8% (IC95%: 47,5%; 50,1%), variando entre 26,3% para os que saíram todos ou quase todos os dias para atividades não essenciais e 64,9% para os que ficaram em casa o tempo todo. Universitários que referiram continuar trabalhando normalmente e que tinham medo da pandemia tiveram maior probabilidade de serem inativos fisicamente. Já os grupos que tiveram menor probabilidade para o desfecho foram os que tiveram redução na renda, os que saíram mais de casa para atividades essenciais e não essenciais, os que passaram a trabalhar em casa, os que cumpriram o distanciamento social e os que tinham algum fator de risco para COVID-19. Os achados indicam que um a cada dois universitários brasileiros são inativos fisicamente e os principais fatores de risco foram continuar trabalhando normalmente e medo da pandemia. Recomendam-se intervenções para promover a atividade física, especialmente para os grupos mais afetados pela pandemia de COVID-19.
