Global Study of attitudes towards COVID-19

Research from NUI Galway, co-ordinated by Whitaker Institute member Dr Hannah Durand, of the Health and Well-Being cluster, as part of a global study of attitudes towards COVID-19 public health guidelines shows that threats of arrest, fines or quarantine do not help encourage people to behave in line with the advice. The International COVID-19 Awareness and Responses Evaluation (iCARE) research is being carried out in collaboration with the Montreal Behavioural Medicine Centre (MBMC) in Canada to understand the socio-demographic, behavioural and economic determinants of adherence to physical distancing guidance.
