Resumen

The objective of this study was to explore the relationship between sociodemographic factors and fear of COVID-19 in a Cuban population. A web-based study with a cross-sectional design was conducted. The sample comprised 1,145 participants. To explore fear, the Fear of COVID-19 Scale was used.

Additionally, knowing a person positive for COVID-19 significantly increases fear levels in Cuban participants.
