Abstract:
In this study, we tried to outlook into our consideration and aimed to assess the consciousness (knowledge, adoption & constraints) of Veterinary practitioners towards COVID-19 in Gujarat state. The cross-sectional study was conducted in all thirty-three districts of Gujarat state (India) from May 18 to 26, 2020, involving a total of 380 veterinary practitioners willingly participated by using Google forms. The results revealed that the mean score of knowledge about COVID-19 was found to be higher in age (up to 30 years) of veterinary practitioners (14.70±1.70), mean adoption score was found to be higher in 31 to 50 years age group (14.94±2.72). Constraint faced by veterinary practitioners during the lockdown due to COVID-19 was highest in convincing the animal owners to keep the social distance (61.84%). As per our acquaintance, this is the first study in India examining the knowledge, adoption, and constraints towards COVID-19 among veterinary practitioners. The study participants showed adequate basic knowledge of COVID-19. There is a strong need to implement periodic educational interventions and training programs on infection control practices and other updates of COVID-19 across veterinary professionals.
