Abstract: The current novel coronavirus pandemic, COVID-19, was first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, and has spread globally, causing startling loss of life, stalling the global economy, and disrupting social life.It has been transmitted in Bangladesh since March 2020. International passenger who came from abroad suspected the carrier of this virus. So it is important to sort out knowledge, attitude and practice of overseas passengers. One of the challenges to contain COVID-19 is convincing people to adopt personal hygiene, social distancing, and self-quarantine practices that are related to knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) of the residents of respective countries. Bangladesh, a densely populated country with a fast-growing economy and moderate literacy rate, has shown many hiccups in its efforts to implement COVID-19 policies. Understanding KAP may help policy makers produce informed decisions. This study assessed KAP in relation to COVID-19 in Bangladesh. This is a cross sectional observational, study conducted in Shah Amanat International Airport. 384participants were included and modified predesigned WHO Questionnaire was used to collect the data. 384 participants used preventive measures like masks, social distancing, hand washing, staying at home, and usage of mobile help line. The collected data was analyzed using SPSS version-22 software. Results were tabulated for demographic details, knowledge, attitude, practice analysis and statistical analysis. 39.6 % had knowledge, 68 % had attitude to adopt measures and 72.7 % were following preventive measures and 3.1 % were using mobile help line to protect themselves from COVID-19. In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, 100 % awareness among the community is required.
