Webinar: Factors of physical (social) distancing adherence during the COVID-19 pandemic

  • the socio-demographic, social, psychological and clinical factors
  • special populations that may benefit from targeted public health interventions
  • potentially modifiable factors that may improve the public’s adherence to physical distancing.
