ALEXANDRE, Maria Edna Silva de et al. Attitudinal Positioning, Perception of Vulnerability and Concern on getting COVID-19. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.72, n.2, pp. 25-42. ISSN 1809-5267.

This research program aimed to test a set of hypotheses in order to show how Attitudinal and Political Positions, Attitudes towards Diseases, Personality Traits and the religiosity of Brazilians are related to their perception of vulnerability and concern in contracting COVID-19. To do this, two studies were carried out. In the first, the Attitude Positioning of internet users was identified in 2.000 comments on a statement made by the President of Brazil about the new coronavirus and COVID-19. Study 2, on the other hand, resulted in the proposition of an explanatory model with good adjustment rates [x2 = 67.72; g = 24; x2/gl = 2.6; CFI = 0.94; TLI = 0.9; RMSEA = 0.06 (CI90%: 0.04-0.08)], demonstrating that Political Positions, Attitudes towards Diseases and Conscientiousness predict the perception of vulnerability and the concern to get COVID-19. In short, such findings may support future studies and interventional models in social dynamics to contain the current pandemic.
