Who's Most Likely To Break Social Distancing Guidelines?


New research from Harvard and Calgary Universities have shed new light on who is more or less likely to observe COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. UPI reports more North American and European men, and young adults of both sexes, fail to adhere to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines than older adults. The data showed 59% of male respondents said they adhered to local social distancing guidelines, while 69% of female respondents reported doing so. However, 49% of adults aged 18 to 24 years complied with guidelines for social distancing, while up to 90% of adults aged 25 and older did so. Countries with 'strict' social distancing guidelines didn't appear to influence compliance. Nor did a participant's personal experience with the disease.

  • Nothing To See Here: Trump's Case Of COVID-19 Sends Campaign Into A Fever

    For President Donald Trump, a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 couldn't have come at a worse time. Aside from the very serious risk to his health, focusing the nation's attention on the pandemic is the last thing the Trump campaign wants to do. As Trump has now been hospitalized, he's all but powerless to reset his reelection campaign around issues like the Supreme Court and the economy. Some world leaders, like British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, saw a bump in approval from the public following a coronavirus diagnosis. However, it's highly unlikely Trump will receive such grace. He mocked opponent Hillary Clinton in 2016 for contracting pneumonia. He has also jeered at Vice President Joe Biden numerous times for wearing masks and scrupulously observing public health recommendations.
