ABSTRACT

Social Stigma Associated with COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The level of stigma associated with COVID-19 [Coronavirus disease 2019] is based on three main factors: 1) it is a disease that's new and for which there are still many unknowns; 2) we are often afraid of the unknown; and 3) it is easy to associate that fear with 'others'. It is understandable that there is confusion, anxiety, and fear among the public. Unfortunately, these factors are also fueling harmful stereotypes."
