Exploring Attitudes Towards and Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Individuals


We are currently experiencing a global pneumonia pandemic lacking any recent precedent, caused by SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). To date, it has infected over 2,000,000 persons worldwide. Drastic measures have been taken by governments and public health officials in an attempt to decrease the spread of this infection. These measures have included restrictions on border crossing, airline travel, work, and gathering of people for any reason. The impact of both the infection and the response may be affecting individuals in many different ways. No studies to our knowledge have been conducted to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on various spheres of an individual’s life.
