Public attitudes toward COVID-19 health guidelines In North America: A rapid review
This peer-reviewed article was published in the Pacific Journal of Business and Societal Research, Vol. 1-1
COVID-19 has destroyed economies, trading, industries, administrative systems and even limited the mobility of people in many countries. The only solution to minimize outbreaks is to follow the guidelines provided by health organizations. Therefore, this research analyzes the attitude of North Americans towards public health guidelines or SOPs for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Instead of doing empirical investigations, this study has conducted a review of several relevant research articles. The results highlighted that in comparison to the young generation, the elderly people regard this virus as a threat and follow the public health policies or guidelines. This study has several limitations, first, it’s based on the review of the literature and focused on North America. Secondly, it lacks the usage of specific meta-analysis software (i.e. RevMan). In future, the researchers can do an empirical investigation to evaluate the exact percentage of people following the guidelines and are much concerned about the virus.
