People in most countries seem to have adopted more than one measure. This is particularly true in Italy where socially distancing, mask wearing, and glove wearing are all commonly reported. Otherwise, most places reported high levels of distancing and mask wearing.
There are a few exceptions to this.
While Australia and the UK have plenty of people social distancing, adoption of other measures are relatively low. With many in the UK returning to work this week, and using public transport to get there, the government’s new guidelines will hope to change this.
Spain is also noticeable. It reports some of the lowest numbers compared to other countries, particularly for social distancing (39%). This doesn’t mean people are being less cautious, though. The country also has the highest number of people not leaving their homes at 24%. This likely explains the lower number of people taking out-of-home precautions.
Overall, it’s promising to see that the vast majority of people are acting to stay safe. As the world hopes to stave off a second wave of infections, this is good news.
