Sosial samhandling i Covid-19 epidemien

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag

Appropriate response to Covid-19 requires an understanding of the epidemiological and behavioural drivers of disease transmission. Due to the dynamic nature of the epidemic and with the spread of the disease in Norway, as well as the UK and the other countries of Europe, analyses of the main factors affecting transmission need constant updating to provide relevant data-driven evidence to inform public health policies. Timely data on social contacts and uptake of protective behaviours will be needed for shaping public health messaging and monitoring its effectiveness. In this prospective cohort study we will follow adults during the course of the Covid-19 epidemic in Norway, United Kingdom, Belgium and the Netherlands. The cohort already subscribe to internet panels from market research companies. The company will ensure a sample that is representative of the national population on age of adults, sex, geographical location, and socio-economic status. The survey will be repeated in 6 waves with 3 week intervals, with an anticipated drop out of 15% per wave, to yield a panel that monitors social mixing patterns in Norway over 18 weeks. The development, piloting and analysis of the work will be led by the University of Antwerp and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Real-time analysis and presentation of the data will be conducted by the LSHTM team, with additional input from partner organisations (RIVM, Bern, ISI Turin). The PI for the Norwegian study into which this proposal (the Norwegian survey) will be embedded as a workpackage is Birgitte Freiesleben De Blasio (National Institute of Health,NIPH, Norway). This Workpackage will be coordinated by Bjarne Robberstad (University of Bergen, UiB), and due to its time sensitivity be submitted for separate ethical clearance ahead of the main project led by NIPH.
