Abstract : COVID-19 is the emerging global challenge in today's world. The primary symptoms of this disease include dry cough, fever, shortness of breath, myalgia and fatigue. Due to the extremely high infection rate, there is intense fear of contacting individuals who are suspected of being infected. Unfortunately, this amplified fear among people has led to the emergence of social stigma in certain parts of the world. Existing fear prevents individuals from thinking rationally which in turn may result in discrimination in society. Although ongoing researches are focussing on the development of effective vaccine preparation and drugs with high cure rate, the psychosocial impact of this disease is yet to be studied in detail. Recent literature has shown that there is very high prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorders, generalizwd anxiety and depression developing in the Chinese population after the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic (Liu et al). This study has tried to assess the level of fear of COVID-19 in a larger population size so that further interventions can be planned accordingly to combat the mental health problems developing due to this pandemic
