Resumo

Objetivo: Pretendeu avaliar-se o impacto dos media no medo de contrair COVID-19. A confiança na informação associada a cada meio de comunicação, apreensão relativamente à divulgação diária das estatísticas, apreensão sentida com as medidas de prevenção e advertências veiculadas pelos meios de comunicação social, frequência de consumo de notícias, avaliação dos media na clarificação e informação sobre a pandemia e o medo de contrair a doença foram o foco deste estudo. Métodos: Amostra constituída por 349 indivíduos que completaram um Questionário Sociodemográfico, um Questionário de Opinião sobre os Media e o Fear of Contracting Covid Scale 19 (FCCS) através de uma plataforma online. Resultados: O medo de contrair COVID-19 foi superior nas mulheres em relação aos homens. Os participantes com mais medo de contrair a doença foram os que mais confiaram na informação da televisão, jornais e rádio, mas não das redes sociais. Scores mais elevados na FCCS corresponderam a valores mais elevados na clarificação e informação transmitida pelos media. A confiança nos jornais, apreensão sentida com a divulgação diária, frequência de consumo de notícias, e avaliação dos media na clarificação e informação foram preditores do medo de contrair COVID-19. Conclusões: Os media demonstraram ser fundamentais na consciencialização e sensibilização da população.
