by Nirosha Varghese and Aleksandra Torbica

There are many questions in the current crisis regarding health economics. Examples include how the population is dealing with the coronavirus threat and to what extent it complies with and adheres to political decisions such as the prohibition of contact and social distancing.

To answer these questions, the Hamburg Center for Health Economics has launched a study (a survey in 7 countries) in collaboration with several universities, including Bocconi.
