Public transport and the pandemic: perceptions of risk and mitigation

by | Mar 14, 2022 | Blogs, Theme 3: Sector-specific studies | 0 comments

Throughout the pandemic, public transport has been identified as a significant potential hub of transmission for the disease, with messaging urging people to avoid it wherever possible. Despite this guidance, however, there was little evidence on how great this risk was, or the effectiveness of mitigation measures such as masks and ventilation. In this blog, published by Policy@Manchester, Dr Anna Coleman and Dr Nicola Gartland from Theme 3 of the PROTECT study, outline the findings from a new study investigating perceptions of risk and mitigation, and what lessons policymakers might learn when developing guidance for future pandemics.
