PsyCorona: A Multinational Research Project Investigating Psychological Reactions to COVID-19.
The spread of COVID-19 is an international phenomena with far reaching implications for physical and economic health. PsyCorona is a multi-national project investigation how psychological factors relate to the spread of the virus. Working with teams of data scientists, we are connecting psychological factors to big data sets containing information about virus spread and policy implementation. Participants in the study come from 22+ countries and have been tracked weekly since mid-March. I will overview the study, describe some of the research projects in place that are using the data set, and answer questions about how psychological factors may relate to the spread of COVID-19.
