  • Scale to assess Covid-19 fears could help save lives

    A scale that assesses the level of fear of Covid-19 among the general population has been developed by an international team of researchers led by Amir Pakpour, Professor of Health Psychology at Qazvin University in Iran and affiliated researcher at the School of Health and Welfare, Jönköping University. The scale is now being used in research in over 30 countries worldwide and hopes to complement clinical efforts by identifying the need for education about the virus and support for those affected by the pandemic.
