This study set out to appraise the trend of cases, recovery and death and the general population’s Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices toward COVID-19 during the rise of the pandemic in Cameroon, and to recommend appropriate response strategies. The study was conceptually substantiated by the Health Belief Model. The research design is a cross-sectional survey, more specifically a community-based survey. All valid person aged 16 and above who had been residing on the national territory of Cameroon at least 4 months as from the date of data collection was eligible for the study. A total of 1125 people were validated for the study following data clean up and exploratory statistics, making a return rate of 95.7%, given that the probabilistically calculated sample size was 1176. Data were collected through face-to-face approach with participants using a semi-structured questionnaire. This was due to the fact that the internet penetration rate in Cameroon was estimated to just 23.2% and it was much lower in rural areas, which made an online survey difficult. However, those in charge of collecting data were COVID 19 negative, did not develop any of the officially recognized prelude signs over the past 14 days, and were to respect official barrier/control measures during data collection. Data were entered in an electronic database with the support of EpiData and analyzed using the process of thematic analysis with the support of Atlas ti (Atlas.ti Scientific Software Development GmbH, Berlin, Germany). The need for a vaccine was among the least emphasized suggestions on the part of the participants who instead weighed more on education and sensitization in respect to control measures, provision of materials, economic incentive and making available an efficient cure at affordable cost without neglecting the potential of local traditional medicine.
