ABSTRACT

Background: COVID-19 is the main health problem with an estimated over 90,000 people living in Jordan.

Our goal was to assess the patients awareness and knowledge toward COVID-19 in Prince Rashed Hospital in Jordan. Methods: In November 2021, A cross sectional questionnaire were carried out on 110 patients at different departments in Prince Rashed Hospital. A questionnaire which is formed by the researcher was used to collect data then analyze it by Microsoft Excel and SPSS. Explanatory statistics were used to present of analytical information. Patients with higher knowledge grade were considered to have better knowledge and experience. Previously, Fisher's exact tests as well as binary logistic regression have been used to assess the knowledge and effectiveness of COVID-19. P <0.05 had consider significant. Results: 100patients completed the questionnaire. Most of them were women (53%), over 45 years old (31%), and 40% indicated that the secondary level is the highest level of education. About 53% (n = 53) had sufficient knowledge of COVID-19 and related activities, while 51% (n = 51) had excellent results for COVID-19 practice. Patients female were three times more likely to avoid COVID-19 than men. About more than third of those found COVID-19 prevention easy.
