Protecting population physical & mental health during the coronavirus pandemic: A representative national weekly survey to understand changes

University of Aberdeen with Universities of Edinburgh, Highlands & Islands, Stirling, Strathclyde
United Kingdom
Key Focus of Study
We will investigate whether people are adhering to coronavirus guidelines, how this impacts their mental & physical health and what triggers changes in adherence and health (e.g. worries, trust, Covid deaths). Over 4 months we will conduct nationally representative surveys to assess changes and possible explanations in 8000 people. Each month we will report changes and explanations so the government and health officials can rapidly act to protect the public and prevent ill-health during the pandemic.
