In this paper, the intuitionistic fuzzy set and the triangular intuitionistic fuzzy number were displayed, as well as the intuitionistic fuzzy semi-parametric logistic regression model when the parameters and the dependent variable are fuzzy and the independent variables are crisp.  Two methods were used to estimate the model on fuzzy data representing Coronavirus data, which are the suggested method and {The Wang et al method}, through the mean square error and the measure of goodness-of-fit, the suggested estimation method was the best.
