Research teams at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland have found that women are more likely to adhere to covid-19 regulations than men, based on a survey of 7, 000 people.
Results showed the majority of women who had participated in the survey are following the rules set by the government to keep the public safe.
However, men and younger generations were identified as the groups that require a change in behaviour.
The team asked Scottish interviewees if they were sticking to covid-19 rules and regulations, including social distancing , wearing face coverings and washing hands.
The results of this survey could help the Scottish government and even the government of the United Kingdom to identify which groups they should target more in coronavirus awareness campaigns, said Prof. Diane Dixon.
