ABSTRACT:
Background: Corona viruses are large group of viruses that causes illness in human and animals. The outbreak of novel corona virus (COVID -19) was initially noticed in a seafood market in Wuhan city in Hubei province of China in mid-December, 2019. Novel Corona virus spreading globally at very fast rate each and every individual is at risk. No treatments clinically proven to be effective yet. A global coordinated effort is needed to stop the further spread of the virus so assess the knowledge and practice regarding prevention of COVID infection among parents of under 10 years children. Method: A descriptive research design was employed among parents of children of under 10 years who are attending the selected OPDs and immunization clinic of AIIMS Raipur. The size of the sample was 263. Non probability purposive sampling technique is used. The data collection tools are socio demographic proforma, knowledge questionnaire and checklist which is validated by experts. The data is collected through online mode via goggle form. Data analysis is done by descriptive and inferential statistics. Information regarding the clinical signs of the disease, modes of transmission, protection measures against COVID-19 and satisfaction with governmental measures was collected. Results: The analysis of data regarding the objective of the research findings reveals that out of 263 parents, 213(80.98%) were have adequate knowledge, 33(12.54%) have moderately adequate knowledge and 16(6.08%) have inadequate knowledge and out of 263 parents, 193(50.57%) parents are following good practice measures, (41.82%) are following moderately good practice and 20(7.60%) are following poor practice measures regarding prevention of COVID infection. There is significant association between knowledge and practice with selected demographic variables. Conclusions: In summary, we believe that the findings reported here are important for understanding the clinical characteristics and vertical transmission potential of COVID-19 infection in children, from the perspective of parents. The knowledge of parents about COVID-19 in children was considered good in the case of most parents. This knowledge and practice helps with creating educational programs to increase awareness for areas that have weakness.
