The non-therapeutic measures taken by the Government of Bangladesh to tackle the pandemic of SARS-CoV-2 have little impact on the reduction of transmission of the virus as the adoption of preventive measures by the general population is predominantly a behavioral issue, and often influenced by their knowledge and attitudes. This study assessed the levels and determinants of knowledge, attitudes, and practices toward COVID-19 among the population of Bangladesh aged 18 years and above. This study adopted a cross-sectional survey design. Data was collected from 1056 respondents using the online platform Google Forms.
