Depression after diagnosis of RT-PCR and positive results that do not go negative in patients with diagnosed COVID-19 still need further research. This study aims to determine the relationship of severe depression with RT PCR results that remain positive even though it has been repeated many times. A total of 32 patients diagnosed with COVID-19 were assigned a level of depression using the Beck's Depression Inventory-II questionnaire. Pearson's correlation and linear regression were performed to identify the relationship and its strengths. Patients with a diagnosis of COVID-19 numbered 32 people, assessed the level of depression with results, minimal depression (12.5%), mild (12.5%), moderate (12.5%), severe (62.5%). Patients with severe depression have more RT-PCR repeat rates than mild depression. The correlation test results showed a significance value of 0.415 with a regression coefficient of 0.000 with Î± = 5%. In sum, the severity of depression has a strong association with RT-PCR results.
