The aim of the study was to assess the knowledge and perception of general public regarding novel coronavirus. Methods: A cross-sectional, web based survey was conducted among the general public of India, including 156 participants with voluntary participation in the last week of April 2020. A survey instrument was used for assessing the knowledge and perception of the participants towards novel coronavirus. Results: Descriptive statistics was used for analysis. Majority of the participants were students and 18-24 years of age. The mostly used sources of information were news, media and government official websites. Majority of the participants (53.20%) were having poor knowledge regarding the disease whereas about two third of the participants (69.20%) showed a good perception towards the disease. Conclusion: There is a need for knowledge improvement in the general public to face the ongoing challenges related to the novel coronavirus when a lot of wrong information is being circulated on various whatsapp groups.
