The questionnaire was divided into 5 parts, part 1demographic information, and next 3 parts evaluated knowledge (10 questions), attitude, (10 questions) and practice (9 questions). Part 5 obtained access to health care workers' mental well-being. The data was subjected to Chi-square analysis and Pearson’s correlation; 95% confidence interval (CI) was calculated and p<0.05 was recognised statistically significant. Results A total of 388 HCWs (response rate: 88.78 %) completed the survey out of 437 participants; 72 % (n=1279) were female, 40.46 % (n=157) were aged 31-40 years, and most were nurses (n=258, 66.49 %). A large percentage of HCWs had strong Knowledge, positive Attitude and good Practice towards COVID-19.
