Diabetes Survey: What’s the biggest advantage to social distancing?
IDS Monthly Survey: April 2020
LAST MONTH’S SURVEY QUESTION:
In last month’s edition of Diabetes Bites we asked how you’re dealing with the coronavirus outbreak. There were 139 responses:
2% A. I’m really not worrying about it or doing anything differently
39% B. I’m just using common sense – handwashing more, staying away from sick people, etc.
49% C. I’m following all of the recommendations – frequent sanitizing, no face-touching, avoiding travel and group events
10% D. I’m pretty much avoiding all exposure to the outside world
Interestingly, most people responded around the time the pandemic was first hitting the US. We would probably see the results skewed much more heavily towards C and D today.
THIS MONTH’S NEW SURVEY QUESTION:
Since we can all use a silver lining, which of the following do think is the single biggest ADVANTAGE (besides slowing the spread of the virus) to all the social restrictions that have been put into place?
