In my survey I have asked questions like "what do you think the overall risk level will be" ... answers range from very less (1) to very high (5) on a 5 scale category, I have also left an option "don't know" for the respondents ... incidentally for many questions like the above one, many of the respondents have replied "don't know" instead of choosing any response from Likert scale

How should I calibrate those responses, ... looking forward to your advice, thanks

I think there is probably a literature on what to do with responses like "don't know". It is not a literature that I am familiar with, however, so I can't answer this. Maybe someone else can.
