Abstract

Since the coronavirus novel case was first announced by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia, we conducted research that aims to find out the impact of the novel coronavirus towards people’s clean and healthy behaviors in DKI Ja-karta Province. Random sampling was used in this study with samples (n=349) who filled in online questions via Google Form. To date (1st June 2020), there is no vaccine or no specific treatment for COVID-19. Therefore, efforts to prevent transmission of SARS-CoV-2 can be done by applying a clean and healthy life culture. This research show the culture is reflected in the behavior of washing hands, consuming nutritious food, exercising regularly and getting enough rest, not smoking and avoiding cigarette smoke, as well as maintaining environmental hygiene and personal hygiene has been carried out by the community of the Province of DKI Jakarta. Preparedness should be a priority for future pandemic outbreak.
