Impact of Fear of Covid-19 and Familial Infection on the Mental Health of Medical Professionals
The present study examined the impact of fear of COVID-19 and familial infection on the mental health of medical professionals. The study was based on cross-sectional survey design. Participants comprised of medical professionals (N = 300) working in different hospitals. Both males (n = 217, 72.3%) and females (n = 83, 27.7%) participated in the study. Data were collected using a convenient sampling technique. Fear of COVID- 19 Scale (Ahorsu et al., 2020), Fear of COVID-19 Familial Infection Scale (Mayer et al., 2020), and Positive Mental Health Scale (Lukat et al., 2016) were used for data collection. Results revealed that familial infection is the moderator between fear of covid-19 and mental health. The study is an important addition to the existing body of knowledge that fear of familial infection also plays a moderating role between fear of covid-19 and mental health and also affects the mental health of medical professionals.
