Özet

The COVID-19 Phobia Scale (C19P-S) was developed as a screening tool for coronaphobia related to the current COVID-19 pandemic but to date has not been adapted to and validated in Asia. The current study aimed to adapt and validate the C19P-S with a sample of 321 Korean individuals. Analyses showed that the Korean C19P-S (C19P-SK) has excellent reliability (a ¼ .95) and confirmed its structural validity, and convergent and discriminant validity. Therefore, we conclude that the C19P-SK can be used to assess COVID-19 phobia in this population.
