Here’s what young people think about coronavirus.

YouthInsight wanted to gain an understanding of the precautions being undertaken by young people in the face of coronavirus, as well as their concerns.

We conducted a survey in which we asked young people to separate the facts from fiction, as well as measure if messages from news orgs and the government were gaining traction. The second part of the survey attempted to understand how the constant news coverage and shifting situation affected youth wellbeing. We also endeavoured to find out how young people would cope with learning remotely, and whether or not they were facing an uncertain employment future (for instance, if their current casual hours of employment had been cut in the past fortnight).

Pictured are just a few nuggets from the results. Follow the link below to see more. (Given the rapidly evolving situation regarding coronavirus, it is worth noting this survey was conducted between Wednesday 18 March and Sunday 22 March.)
