Abstract

The Indonesian government has declared the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) virus outbreak as a nonnatural national disaster. A healthy behavior, social, and physical distancing should be implemented to break the chain of the Covid-19 virus transmission. This research aimed to determine the problem-solving and survival way of low-income families during the Covid-19 pandemic. Data was collected using a questionnaire that contains multiple-choice and open questions distributed to 84 respondents. Then, data were analyzed descriptively. The results indicated most low-income families aware of the Covid-19 threat and consumed traditional herbs or vitamins as prevention. Nevertheless, they depend on their monthly income to live. Thus, 44.05% of respondents still do their outdoor activities. Amongst 94.05% of respondents knew the WHO protocol to prevent virus transmission, such as wearing a mask, maintaining the physical distance, washing hands with soap, and wearing gloves. Despite their awareness of the Covid-19 threat, more than 70% of respondents would not seek medical attention if they feel unwell. Instead, they bought medicine in the market. Even though most of the respondents aware of the Covid-19 threat and perform a healthy lifestyle, they still lack an understanding of the importance of medical treatment. Thus, community service is needed near the future to gain awareness of the importance of medical treatment.
