The coronavirus (also called Covid-19) is a virus that infects individuals around the world and can cause respiratory problems and in some cases, death. The Covid-19 is already circulating in Burundi, and a lot of efforts are being invested to prevent its spread in our community. In that light, the government of Burundi took a number of measures during the last couple of weeks to prevent the spread of Covid-19. People were asked to avoid travelings and to frequently wash their hands. With this short questionnaire, we try to find out how you experience and apply the instructions implemented against coronavirus. We call upon volunteers to complete this questionnaire as truthfully as possible; because this helps us investigate which measures are effective in these exceptional times. It should take you about 10 minutes to answer the questions. This is not an exam and your name is not required, so please give accurate answers.
Participation in the survey is voluntary, you can cancel it at any time without any disadvantages. No names or sensitive information will be required from you. The information obtained will be stored anonymously and treated confidentially. This is an online survey launched by researchers of the University of Burundi, in collaboration with authorities from the Ministry of Public Health and AIDS control. It will be used to understand the feasibility and effectiveness of implementing preventive measures for the coronavirus at the individual and country levels. The results will be shared with the local health authorities and also disseminated via scientific journals.
