Background and Aim: The crime of theft is a behavior that threatens the life and financial security of members of society. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the prevalence of Covid19 virus on the incidence of theft and is a causal-comparative study that has been done descriptively post-event.
Materials and Methods: The statistical population in this study is all theft cases located in the first half of 2018, 2019 and 2020 in Dashti city of Bushehr province. For sampling in the present study, the counting method was used and the collected data were analyzed by spss22 software.
Ethical Considerations: Ethical considerations regarding the writing of texts as well as references to sources were observed.
Findings: There was no significant difference between the average number of thefts in the first half of 2018 and 2019 (P=0.56, P=0.92 and P=0.14). However, the average home burglary in the first half of 2018 and 2019 compared to the first half of 2018 shows a significant difference (P<0.001). Also, according to the paired t-test, there was a significant difference between the thefts in the first half of 1399 in terms of level of significance within the group (P=0.001).
Conclusion: Due to the observance of health protocols after the outbreak of corona due to people staying at home, the rate of home burglary in the first half of 2020 compared to the first half of 2018 and 2019 shows a significant decrease; There is a similar trend for other thefts, indicating that the spread of the virus has had little effect on the aforementioned thefts.
