COVID-19 & Animals: What The Public Does And Doesn’t Know
This project was designed to quickly gather information for animal welfare organizations in light of the current outbreak of COVID-19 (also referred to as the novel coronavirus). We designed, ran, and published the study over a two-week period. Topics covered by the poll include animal-related beliefs and understanding of COVID-19, intentions to change diet or donation behavior because of the pandemic, support for relevant legislative changes, and reaction to an argument outlining the link between animal agriculture and disease. The results point to a need for more public education about the animal origins of the COVID-19 outbreak.
