What implications will the pandemic have on the daily lives of people around the globe? How will the lockdowns, layoffs and food shortages affect people’s mental health, relationships, work, income, and expectations of their government? How will these factors develop over time as new information about the virus emerges, exposure increases, and new measures are enforced by states?
Scientifically valid answers to these questions are of critical importance when dealing with the ongoing pandemic, for maintaining health, nutrition, and social peace around the world.
Life with Corona is a not-for-profit research project based on rigorous academic methods. It was created by researchers to capture the voices and moods of affected citizens around the world during this extraordinary time. The aim of the project is to track the impact of the pandemic, to build a global knowledge base on how people are dealing with this exceptional situation. The project will provide data to support sustainable socio-economic responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
