Fear of COVID-19 related stigmatization / by Darcy Hango.: CS45-28/1-2020-48E-PDF

"This article examines which groups of people feel more afraid of being the target of unwanted behaviours because of perceived exposure risk to COVID-19. It also examines specific reasons people have given for thinking they may be targeted, including not wearing a mask, being a healthcare worker (including working in seniors’ residences, nursing homes or other long-term care residences), having a place of employment associated with a risk of COVID-19, having health conditions other than COVID-19 that may cause coughing or sneezing, having another type of health condition, being elderly, and because of one’s racial identity. The data comes from a new panel data source, the Canadian Perspectives Survey Series, which is surveying the same group of Canadians on a regular basis to see how they are doing in the context of the pandemic"--Page [1].
