Brief Answer:
Osteoarthritis is a possibility

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Most probably it will be an osteoarthritis.
As of now she can try over the counter available analgesics/anti inflammatory combination like aceclofenac/seratiopeptdase for symptomatic relief.
Do simple physical exercises and lose extra weight. Sedentary life style and obesity worsen the symptoms.
Once the COVID circumstances improves detailed evaluation including X-ray and MRI can be taken if pain persists.
