RESUMO

The Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) in March 2020. Trinidad and Tobago reported its first infection on March 12th 2020. This study assessed knowledge, attitudes and practices toward COVID-19 among Trinidadians during the post-lockdown period. A validated questionnaire was used to conduct a cross-sectional survey from May 25th to June 6th 2020.Most respondents (512, 96.6%) knew that COVID-19 is highly infectious. Many (523, 98.7%) identified vulnerable groups as persons 65 years and older and those with preexisting co-morbidities (480, 90.6%). Respondents identified COVID-19 symptoms as fever (498, 94.0%), dry cough (495, 93.4%), myalgia (403, 76.0%) and sore throat (441, 83.2%). Most 504 (95.1%) acknowledged that COVID-19 threatened the country's economy. Dominant practices included regular hand washing (97.2%) and social distancing (512, 96.6%).Health authorities should continue public education efforts to increase knowledge and the adoption of recommended practices.
