Understanding Coronavirus Disease
Lohinica, A., Sane, J., Sibenberg, K., et al. (2020). Understanding Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Risk Perceptions Among the Public to Enhance Risk Communication Efforts: A Practical Approach for Outbreaks, Finland, February 2020. Eurosurveillance. 25(13).
This article describes an exercise which aimed to understand risk perception about COVID-19 in Finland. The authors collected real time social media and email data to inform risk communication efforts each week. The authors emphasize the need to inform risk communication by psychological, societal, and cultural considerations (which are constantly changing) and note that future surveys could be employed to understand public trust in health authorities. While conducted in Finland, the methodology may be useful in the U.S. and other parts of the world.
