Abstract

Abas Khan*, G. H. Yatoo and Mohd Sarwar Mir

ABSTRACT

Background: Implementing personal hygiene and public health behaviours are necessary to curb the spread of coronavirus, like hand washing and social distancing, which are going to be challenging if not impossible in these settings. Objective: Assessment of health workers awareness for prevention of COVID-19 Infection. Methods: A cross sectional survey was carried out. Results and conclusion: Proper knowledge and attitude correlate with a lower incidence of healthcare-acquired infections. Thus, there is a huge gap between the knowledge and practices of healthcare staff regarding COVID-19. Existing knowledge is adequate. We recommend appropriate measures to interrupt aerosol transmission of coronavirus by ensuring optimal hand hygiene, cough hygiene, frequent environment disinfection, and other beneficial practices among healthcare workers.
