Europe must go beyond science to survive Covid crisis

Jon Henley, ‘Europe must go beyond science to survive Covid crisis, says WHO’,, The Guardian ( 6 Oct 2020)

Medical science alone would not be enough to get through the crisis (…) with authorities needing the “courage and empathy” to listen properly to the public and develop policies based on a better understanding of people’s needs and behaviours. (…) Living with such uncertainty and disruption for many months had left many people feeling apathetic and demotivated. (…) We have an opportunity to maximise our community insights into behaviour, to integrate real community participation into public health policy.
