Aims: During the last few months in which the COVID-19 has afflicted the people throughout the world and has turned out as a pandemic leaving nearly 200 thousand deaths, a broad body of information has overwhelmed the people’s mind and investigated the emergence, signs, preventive measures, and precautions to be taken against it. In this paper, the authors intend to define the community’s social resilience, its different types and the ways to survive it.
Information & Methods: In this study, different sources of information such as the news, articles, mass media, and so on were investigated regarding the social resilience through library work.
Findings: Through this study, social resilience was described as a human community’s the ability not only to cope with but also to adapt to social, political, environmental, or economic stresses, which in our case refers to COVID-19 and its pandemic. The social resilience includes capabilities such as coping, adaptive, and transformative ones. The coping capacities refer to the ability of social actors (people) to cope with and overcome all kinds of adversities; the adaptive capacities show the people’s ability to learn from past experiences and adjust themselves to future challenges in their lives; and the transformative capacities are defined as the community’s ability to craft sets of institutions increasing individual welfare and sustainable societal robustness towards future crises.
Conclusion: We should search for the ways to build and maintain social resilience in the community to cope with the current and different types of stresses they suffer from.
