CoronaReport AU is a citizen science project that seeks to engage with the public to build up a picture of how measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 are affecting people’s daily lives, including impacts on short- and long-term health and wellbeing. Unlike traditional survey approaches which ask people to report on the issues that researchers believe are most important, the open-ended nature of the CoronaReport platform will provide a more nuanced picture of the ways in which COVID-19 has influenced health and wellbeing.
Anyone can participate in this study by using a purpose-built app to share geo-located entries about their current situation, activities, surroundings and emotions. Because this is a citizen science project, all data is publicly displayed within the CoronaReport app and website, allowing people to see how others are experiencing the COVID-19, share strategies for managing this situation, and access data to bring about change where needed.
Full details of the study can be found in the Participant Information Sheet. If you would like to take part please visit the CoronaReport website where you can download the app and create a profile. You can then share your experiences via CoronaReport and can see what others are sharing. You can add information to CoronaReport as often as you like. The study has been approved by the University of Sydney Human Research Ethics Committee (Ref: 2020/316).
