It was highlighted that in the original article [1], in the Methods and Results sections of the Abstract, the word “threat” was erroneously written as “treat” in the below two sentences. The original article has been updated.

Abstract (methods)

To collect data an electronic self-designed questionnaire based on the EPPM was used in order to measure the risk perception (efficacy, defensive responses, perceived threat) related to the COVID-19.

Abstract (results)

The results revealed significant differences in efficacy, defensive responses, and perceived threat among different population groups particularly among those aged 60 and over.
