The increasing of online coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) information�sharing in digital media can contribute to the emergence of misinformation in
public. Much insufficient knowledge will confuse public understanding and
affect their quality of life. The study purposed to assess the knowledge and
its influence on Indonesian students' quality of life during the COVID-19
crisis. A cross-sectional study was conducted between October and
December 2020 by distributing online questionnaires. The data analysis was
run through the Spearman correlation method by using SPSS version 21.0. A
total of 200 respondents aged over 17 years were recruited using a snowball
sampling technique. Most study respondents had insufficient knowledge
about COVID-19, 23% of them had moderate knowledge, and only 17.5%
had high knowledge. They obtained primary sources of COVID-19
information from social media platforms. The results showed that health
science students have a better understanding than social science students
(ρ<0.001). The level of knowledge has a significant associated with
psychological domain (ρ=0.020), environmental domain (ρ=0.046), and
overall quality of life (ρ=0.047). Thus, the media control center is vital to
encounter valid information in providing better knowledge and quality of life
during a pandemic.
