The epidemic caused by the new coronavirus has negatively impacted millions of people around the world. Confinement has forced citizens to drastically change the way of relating, working and understanding everyday reality. To evaluate various parameters related to health and habits before and after confinement, the Psychiatry research group of the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) and the Bellvitge University Hospital, together with the Unit for Communication and Scientific Culture of the IDIBELL has prepared a survey aimed at the population. The initiative has the support of the municipality of L’Hospitalet, which will disseminate it to its fellow citizens and encourage participation.
The survey is part of a larger recently launched research project that aims to study the effects of COVID-19 on physical and mental health, eating habits, gambling behaviour, addictions, cultural consumption, or sources of information on health and science issues, among other factors. Citizen participation is and will be a key element to carry it out.
The survey, which is being released just after confinement, is anonymous and takes about 30 minutes to complete: http://is.gd/covid19idibell
