Resumo


SARS-CoV2 has characteristics that are still unknown and therefore untreated. This disease demands efficient biosafety practices for professionals and the population considering the high infectivity rate of these viruses. The objective of this work was to evaluate the knowledge of the population of Northern Paraná - Brazil about the methods indicated for the prevention and reduction of the risk of infections in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. A field research was carried out in the form of a cross-sectional design with the participation of 137 respondents. A questionnaire was applied through Google Forms, the data collected were evaluated using the IBM SPSS Statistics software (version 25) and the dependence of the variables through Pearson's Chi-square test. In this work it was concluded that the population was conscious about the importance of prevention, forms of contagion and symptoms related to the Pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2. In addition, individuals observe professional ethics regarding infection prevention. The mechanisms for seeking health services are not yet clear to the general population. Finally, information on health prevention should be better understood by the population, since health professionals have less infectious diseases.
