Covid-39 Perception and Attitude Survey was conducted with 450 headmen in 19 districts. During the days when the curfew was forbidden, most of the residents were obeying the rules and were cautious about taking their own precautions. Children over the age of 65 and under 20 mostly obeyed the imposed prohibitions. While the rules of social distance and wearing masks were partially followed, there was an increase in social assistance applications.
