The Corona Virus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has impacted all the dimensions of health, routine welfare measures and livelihood of the general population worldwide. It is important to acknowledge that the containment of the outbreak cannot be effectively accomplished or sustained without the active support and engagement of the members of the community. Thus, it becomes extremely crucial to assess the behavioral change in the community, which will eventually determine the rate of transmission. In order to assess all these dimensions, a behavioral tool has been developed in the European region and it is anticipated that the obtained information can help the local and national stakeholders to coordinate their interventions and strategies for mounting a better public health response against the infection. In conclusion, in order to ensure that the public health response to COVID-19 pandemic are relevant and actionable, there is an indispensable need to understand the behavioral insights of the members of the community. This aspect of the disease containment is an important domain as our success will be eventually determined by the extent to which people are informed and willing to adhere to the interventions implemented by the Governments.
