The response of the people indicates that the fear of contracting the viral infection looms large. The survey was conducted over the period of four months. Just a few days before the nationwide lockdown was imposed in March, many people apprehended that they were vulnerable to the viral infection, and from March 31 onwards, a trend emerged where people strongly agreed either they themselves or someone in their family may actually catch the virus.

This trend, where people apprehended catching the coronavirus, continued and a spike was observed in the period from March 31 to May 30. But since the beginning of June, when the country started witnessing a huge jump in daily Covid-19 numbers, people becoming fearful of Covid-19 increased further. The survey indicated that in July, many people apprehended that somebody in their family may catch the virus.
