We are delighted to share the latest findings from Jiří Remr’s research on fears associated with COVID-19. The results indicate that the Fear of COVID-19 Scale (FCV-19S) provides significantly different values among dissimilar sub-populations, highlighting the scale’s effectiveness in capturing variations in fear levels. The study analyzed data from a representative sample of participants and revealed compelling insights.
The analysis showed significant gender differences suggesting that males and females may experience and express fear differently in relation to COVID-19. Additionally, age differences were observed indicating that fear levels may vary also across different age groups. Furthermore, the study found a significant correlation between the fear of COVID-19 and respondents’ attitudes and experiences with COVID-19. For example, statements such as “I am sad.” and “I feel under increased pressure.” demonstrated a strong relationship between fear levels and these attitudes.
These findings highlight the interconnectedness of fear levels with individuals’ perceptions of the well-being and safety of their loved ones.
