Where are you getting information around COVID-19?

  • National Government
  • News: Television
  • News: Digital
  • WHO (World Health Organization)
  • Word of Mouth

What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?

Amongst the missing information, I'd say we miss information about mental well-being, and what support is available. Information about teaching would be great too, like how should or could parents help their children.

What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?

People with mental health disorders are not included in today's information. The amount of news we all have to keep up to is a lot. The information should not take over everything else. We should have more diverse informations.

Kids are not addressed in the situation either. It is hard for them to fully relate and understand the bigger picture.
