Abstract

Introduction: Fear is one of the perceptions that respond to how vulnerable a person is to a situation of risk of contagion by COVID-19 and compromises their well-being, so its research objective is to determine the fear of pandemic due to the new variant of COVID - 19 in the population of the Puente Piedra district in North Lima, Methods: It is a quantitative, non-experimental, descriptive, cross-sectional study, with a total population of 577 participants, who answered a virtual survey with sociodemographic data and the COVID-19 fear scale, Results: In its results, we observe that in the population of the district of Puente Piedra, 82 (14.2%) presents a low effect on fear of COVID - 19, 260 (45.1%) a moderate effect on fear of COVID - 19 and 235 (40.7%) a high effect on fear of COVID - 19, Conclusions: Therefore, it is concluded that the negative emotional charge due to the fear of COVID - 19 considerably affects the mental health of the population.
