Main Article Content
The coastal life people with less academic background are more prone for illness which need awareness. The SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is the causative agent for the infectious illness COVID-19, spreads through infected air droplets and minute airborne particles. Fatigue, shortness of breath, and cognitive impairment are common complaints that develop after 3 months of the Covid -19 syndrome. Aim: The principal aim of our work was to assess the impact of a structured teaching program on the general public's comprehension level about Post COVID-19 syndrome. Methodology Our research was a quasi-experimental design which was used in the study, with a single group accomplishing quantitative pre- and post-tests. Sixty participants of the general public were carefully selected using a non-probability sampling technique. Pre- and post-tests were given, data was collected via self-structured questionnaires, and a organized educational program was delivered via power point. Lessons were educated in groups and one-on-one over the course of a week. Result: The findings confirmed that the pretest knowledge score was 8.92 with a SD of 2.75 before the intervention, and the post-test average score was 16.77 with a SD of 2.102, indicating that there was a substantial increase in the level of knowledge from 31.7% to 88.3% after the organized Program. In terms of the relationship between pre-test and post-test knowledge levels and social and demographic variables, statistically significant correlations were identified in factors like education, occupation age, type of family, and history of comorbidity among the general public. Conclusion: The study concluded that a structured training program was very effective and highly statistically significant in raising public awareness of Post COVID-19 syndrome in patents living in the coastal part of Bay of Bengal.
