The Covid-19 pandemic has imposed and is still imposing major and felt implications on Mozambican society. It is precisely for this reason that, with this article we offer a reflective and pragmatic contribution, with theoretical developments, but with recommendations to face this calamitous scenario. As a methodology, we selected the literature review, with a qualitative approach, supported by some empirical knowledge. The research shows that the Covid-19 pandemic has implications for the population resulting both from the spread of the virus and from measures that seek to minimize its damage. These implications are:  the fear of being infected or not receiving medical attention if necessary; the stress caused by decreased income; the stress of shelter in place; and the uncertainty caused by the absence of a solid exit strategy.  In order to minimize the occurrence of riots caused by the dissatisfaction of Mozambican society, we recommend the following:  maintaining part of the income of formal and informal workers, combining assistance and job preservation policies and subsidies for the at-risk population; a guaranteed reduction of  the rates of electricity and water supply; expanding activities geared to the mental health of the population; disseminating clear, coherent, timely and transparent information about the pandemic and how to tackle it.
