How do different confinement measures affect people across Europe?
Some of the first hardest-hit countries in Europe start planning to relax COVID-19 related restrictions. But how have those restrictions affected the populations? The University of Luxembourg launches a survey to compare the psychological effects of social distancing measures across Europe.

A survey to understand the psychological effects of social distancing measures in Luxembourg and the neighbouring countries.
In less than a month, COVID-19 has profoundly changed our daily habits. Between “home-office", “home-schooling” and only leaving our homes for basic necessities, our social interactions have been drastically reduced. Stress factors such as the loss of income, gloomy news and daily uncertainties must be added to this social isolation. If the need for social distancing measures is rarely questioned in principle, this does not mean that they are without consequences. Two researchers and their teams from the University of Luxembourg, Conchita D'Ambrosio and Claus Vögele, are launching an on-line questionnaire to better understand the impact of quarantine on the population in Luxembourg and the neighbouring countries.
