COVID Social Study - February 2021 Newsletter
Welcome to the eighth COVID Social Study Newsletter. Over 72,000 participants have now contributed over 867,000 questionnaires over the last 47 weeks. Through this, we continue to gather critical information on the psychological and social impact of the pandemic in the UK.
Below, we highlight some of the headline findings, provide links to media coverage, and discuss the work we are doing with policy makers and organisations across the UK.
We have conducted 221 telephone or video call interviews but we are still looking for more participants from specific groups to tell us about their experiences during the pandemic (in return for a £10 gift voucher):
- We are particularly missing the views of men and Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic groups who have had confirmed/suspected COVID-19 and who are experiencing longer term symptoms (long COVID).
If you identify with any of these groups, or if you know anyone who does and who would like further information about the telephone interview study, please contact Alex Burton: firstname.lastname@example.org
