Project Summary

With the COVID 19 pandemic ongoing, people are looking for more and more ways to protect themselves in whatever manner they can. Beyond medical interventions, people are also adapting their behaviors as everyone adjust to live with COVID 19. This project aims to use rapid ethnography to measure in depth contextual information from communities on priorities, concerns, anxieties, rumors, and practices related to the response to the epidemic. This project attempts to use public health measure to help slow the spread of COVID 19.
